as promised, here is the little project i have been working on.
i still need about 10 more wine crates to finish it up, but since they are so hard to find, who knows when i will be done. so i figured i would just show you half of it. it's in the corner of my living room, so eventually i want it to feel up that corner, with basically two rows on each of the walls. that is why one side is all jagged and the other is even.
i love the jagged edge. it makes it feel more rustic to me. basically all i did was pull all the metal staples out and then stain the crates with a dark walnut stain. i really loved the stamped and engraved labels on the wood, so as soon as i painted a coat of stain on, i wiped it off so that you could still see the stamps through the stain.
then i stacked them up how i wanted them and my fabulous husband screwed them all together.
i'm in love with it.
