Who doesn’t love crates? So many things you can do with them, storage, décor, etc. I have quite a few vintage ones that will be making their way to the Christmas Bazaar, but I will also have these. The top one, I believe was originally a box that held CDs. I did some sanding, used my new Ryobi 18V drill to drill holes on each side and added some rope for handles. After sanding it was painted in cream, I used some glaze, and then some metallic blue paint. I finished it with my own white wax. It would be great to hold silverware, jars or bottles, lots of cool ways to reuse this. I used not only my new drill, but also my new Ryobi 18V Circular Saw, and Kreg Jig, to build the bottom crate. I love re-using old wood for projects. It can be challenging, but it is fun when the project works out. These boards have so much age and character. I put the crate together, sanded, dry brushed it in cream Behr paint, drilled the holes and used rope for handles again. Because the edges were pretty rough, I used some trim boards that I had for the corners. I did finish it with a coat of white wax, I really love this one!
