Crazy for crates....

suddenly I'm finding lots of crates and I just love them. There are so many possibilities and they're sooo useful..

In a previous post you'll have seen lots of pretty pastel coloured crates. This time it's a lovely rustic crates with grain sack images from Karen at the Graphics Fairy

this one is transferred using freezer paper..

and this one is a straightforward decoupage...

and then, how about a couple of shallow crates covered with antique sheet music?

Had to share this 'before' picture of a fabulous old hat box I found yesterday, hard to tell from the photo but it's really large (this is my 16inch studio ruler) and has lovely details including the leather strapping and the remains of old labels...

can't wait to get started on this one, it'll be a great match for the vintage trunk i finished a couple of weeks ago...

stylish storage!

have a good weekend x


  1. Kerry, do you think the hat box could've been for an old top hat? Could be some value there, maybe you should google it before you repurpose it. Have a Blessed day, Trisha

  2. I love all of your creations...they are BRILLIANT!!! Hugs and Thanks for sharing : )
