Rustic Wood Storage Crate DIY
"Want to add a bit of rustic charm and organization to your home? All you need is this simple to create wood storage crate DIY! I am always looking for new ways to organize my house. I love using rustic wire baskets and wooden crates for storage. Even though I missed out on that crate at the yard sale, I found some on sale at the craft store recently. I wasn’t missing out again, so I picked one up to make into storage that was not only practical, but also looked great when kept out in the open! I wanted to work a chalkboard element into my crate, so I purchased a chalkboard plaque, as well. The plaque I found had a burlap background making it perfect for the rustic look I was going for!"

I really like this idea. I have several of these crates in my craft room, but they are all still natural. This gives them a nice look. I have to do my staining in the house, and unfortunately the ventilation is not that great. I wonder if using something like tea, coffee, or cocoa would have a nice effect.
