I love old crates and am always on the hunt for them but for this project I broke down and bought new ones. We have a long awkward hallway upstairs that I wanted to knockdown/paint/panel/bedazzle SOMETHING to make it more interesting. So I picked up some crates from the local craft store, stained and stacked them.
I would like to say that I screwed them all together or at least used liquid nails but the truth is they are all precariously stacked there just waiting for a clever toddler to climb them! In actuality they are pretty sturdy and have survived 6 months of my 4 year old running back and forth near them but the liquid nails is on the ever growing to do list!
This project could not be easier!
