Crated Shelves

Rather than stacking crates for storage, turn them on their side and into a brightly colored display. Pick colors that will contrast with the contents or let each family member choose a color and curate his or her own shelf.

Materials & Tools

  • Small- to medium-sized wooden boxes (wine crates, small apple crates or wooden box planters will work)
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Screws with anchors 
  • Electric drill
