DIY Crate Bookshelf! – September 24, 2016

DSCN0068.JPGHello and welcome to a Saturday post! Recently, my dad and i were in Home Depot and we walked by the wood section. Someone had stacked a few crates up and it hit me; wouldn’t that look good as a bookshelf? As a lover of books, i have actually run out of room on my two bookshelves and i also don’t have a bedside table so i thought that this could work as both, which it does. So, here are the steps for this DIY Crate Bookshelf!

Step 1: Buy the crates! I got four crates for about $10 each from Home Depot.

Step 2: Pick out your paint! I chose “Shabby Chic Chalk and Clay Paint” in the color “Malibu Boone Blue” My mom has previously used this brand and it always comes out nice and clean.

Step 3: Paint! The only advice i have is to paint in this order: inside and then outside. I didn’t actually paint the back because it is not seen in the way i set them up. I also only did one coat of the paint. Leave these to dry (about a day) and then stack!
