Having just moved into a new home, I feel swamped with furniture buying, picture hanging and rug rearranging. While the big purchases are (mostly) done, it’s the knickknacks I’m having trouble placing. Whether it’s a small storage unit for my Real Simple magazines, a place to keep shoes at the front door or simply an extra shelf for blankets, crates have been life-saving in the functional décor department.
Not only are they inexpensive to fine at your local wine store or for a couple bucks at Michaels, they can be tailored to your style with a splat of paint or stenciling. These easy DIY crate crafts will update your living room, kitchen, bedroom, you name it!
