Crates are Great: A Round-Up of Crate Ideas

Ok, first things first:  it is SNOWING here in Montana.  To be fair, it is not snowing in the valley where I live, but it is an hour away from here, where I was yesterday.

I have lived in Montana for 33 years, yet I am still a little shocked to have snow in June.  And with this cool, grey weather comes the motivation of a sloth.  

So here it is, 10:45 AM, I am in pajamas, curled up with a blanket, a large cup of jo, and the computer. My house is still in post show disaster mode and I don't care--I will get on it in a bit, after one more cup.  

And while perusing and thinking ahead to what I want to work on this week, I decided it was a good day to show you some of my past crate projects. Crates are so versatile and fun!  If you find a good used one, you have a real treasure.  Crates can be created too!  Let me know which is your favorite!

  3. Great ideas but the first turquoise one is my favourite. So happy that is not our snow although we do get our share here in Ontario, Canada. Today is super hot and humid with a high winds, severe thunderstorm heading our way.

  4. Years ago when we lived in Leadville, CO {elev. over 10,000 feet} it snowed on the 4th of July a couple of times. I do not miss that :)
    My favorite crate projects are the first one-the storage unit from two crates, love that! And I still love the crate on the luggage rack type stand. Every one of them is super cute though. You are the queen of crates, for sure!
