Here’s a quick DIY project I completed yesterday. I found some old wooden crates in the shed, and thought they would be great as storage boxes.I couldn’t resist adding some floral fabrics to make them even prettier.
I’ve included a step by step of how I made them…
I cleaned up the crates with a brush and hoover
sanded the rough edges a little
chose some coordinating fabrics
measured the sides and base of the crates and cut out the fabric (& ironed it after this photo!)
using a staple gun, attached each piece of fabric to the crate…i hemmed as I stapled, just by folding under
nearly finished pink crate
the blue crate finished – perfect for shoes!
adding a few decorations
in its new home as a shelf
I’m really pleased with the result, plus they look pleasingly handmade and rustic. Let me know if you have any questions on the step by step!
