Wooden Crate Wall Cubbies

7:09:00 PM

The day started with a great thrift store find...

Nine raw wood crates, 1/2 price day! $2.00 each!

I couldn't leave them there.

I thought planters, storage, tool totes, cubbies...

I began by filling up a spray bottle with a vinegar/steel wool solution because I wanted an aged look. 

Caution: 
If you try this spray-on idea make sure to run your solution through a coffee filter or the little pieces of steel wool will clog the spray bottle.

The crates started changing color right away...

When the crates were dry I screwed them together. 

I tried a variety of patterns but in the end I liked a nice symmetrical rectangle.

I added rusty hinges and a number or two for decoration.

I added shelf brackets to the bottom so I could hang it from the wall above my desk in the office.

It ended up to be the perfect size for over my desk.

Big enough to hold dishes, pails, and tins for organizers.
