Wooden Crates

1. Kiddies 2. Wedding 3. Herb Garden 4. Utensils 5. Kitchen 6. Flowers

After spending all weekend painting our new home bright white, I also had alot of time to think about what will be adorning these walls. Ben and I already own alot of art, so that will take up a lot of wall space, but I love the idea of having a few vintage wooden crates around the place for a little extra storage! I also love how versatile they are, they can be used for almost anything from kitchen, bedrooms, herb garden or wedding table settings. Love it!!

      Thank you so much Susana, so glad that you like it! I really love the idea of having them in the garden, I just have to wait until summer to be able to potter in ours! What do you have in your wooden crates? xx

    Hi again! I have a few vases on them – I don’t use them as a vase, as they don’t have holes and plants need water to run through. :)

      Aw that’s such a nice idea, I bet the look gorgeous! Oh I can’t wait to get in our garden and start pottering. xx

    Hi I absolutely love the wooden crates look and you’ve done it well! Do you have any hints on where to start looking for wooden crates? They don’t seem to be easy to come by… Thanks

      Hi Sam, thank you so much for your lovely comment! Ah the best places to find them I think would be at farmers markets, hardware shops {maybe} even go to a wine shop and see if they have any left over that you may be able to purchase. We got a few that way years ago and they are now holding cds, but soon to be something a little prettier! xx
