Today on the Boards: Painted Crates

The holidays are the perfect time for me to realize when my shoe collection is getting a bit out of control. Not to mention, I have endless sisters and their significant others using my room to get dressed, apply their makeup and fix their hair before dinner guests arrive, leading to even more chaos. What I wouldn’t give for some more floor space!

With these painted crates anyone could get creative with shoes, handbags, books or glossies that are just piling up around your room in various corners. If you’re not a fan of actually painting your crates, do a stain instead for a more rustic look. And if you’re not up for mounting anything heavy on the wall, crates full of things look much better on the floor than “things” just strewn about. Happy Spring (winter) cleaning!
