wood crates

Emily Oster

I am all for easy storage solutions which is why I like the idea of wood crates. Reusable, functional and timeless in their design, they can be used for all sorts of things from toys and books to pantry items. I have even seen a few crafty furniture items created from them - very Joanna Gaines.

You have to be careful that they don't be become too kitschy or country which is why I think they work best when contrasted with more modern decor. I also think you have to use good solid and well made crates - not the ones usually sold at craft stores that are flimsy and made with staples. Below are some stylish examples of wood crates put to good use.
