When we first moved into a place together it was going to be temporary (the place not the relationship!). We were on a budget (GOHS, I say this in every post!) and buying furniture for a place didn't make sense. One of my solutions to the storage problem was to paint crates and use them. They have been used as book shelves, TV cabinets, kitchen shelves and lately bedside tables. I am excited to see what the next transition will be when we move into our new house.
Here are some useful crate usages that I have found via Pinterest.
|ove the mix and match feeling, keeping the colour thread|
|we both kick our shoes off at the door - this would be perfect|
|I could do this in the bathroom!|
|I love how rustic these shelves look|
|I love this look and feel but it would never work in our house|
|Wine Rack Crate - brilliant|
|This is our current look - well, not nearly as cool!|
|I love the monotone uniform layout of these crates|
|Just add wheels for movable storage|
