Pallet Blueberry Crate

I'm making a pallet crate for a friend like the one we saw at the 
Country Living Fair...

When my friends and I went to the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck last month we spied some really great blueberry crates.

They were definitely cool crates but I knew I could make a knock off when I got home...

So that's just what I did. 

Not too long ago I found a pile of pallet wood on the side of the road during one of my evening walks.

The pallet wood was already pulled apart and cut into manageable sizes so I went back for my truck and picked it up.

I built a box and using wood glue and my nail gun I put the crate together.

I used more pallet wood for the bottom of the crate leaving spaces between the wood similar to the ones on the blueberry crates. 

When the crate was finished I sanded all the edges with the palm sander.

The fair crates had handles carved into the wood but I'm going to add metal handles that were originally on my kitchen cabinets.

I drilled holes using a template I made so the holes would be in the right places.

The pallet crate can be painted, stained or left the way it is.

I think I'm loving it the way it is.

I loved the crates at the fair but mine was easy to make and FREE!

Here are a few more crates I made with the same pallet wood then painted them with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint.
