$5 Crate Shelves

Hi friends!  Remember the super cheap and easy Crate Shelves Whit and I shared with you all?

Well, I got them all dressed up and up on my wall and well….I LOVE them:)

I gave them one coat of Minwax Dark Walnut stain and put them up in my master bathroom that I am currently renovating.

I found these fun, glass containers at Hob Lob (50% off) and filled them with crushed shells (Wal-Mart) and Q-tips etc.!

Love the old crate look and that I could make 2 shelves for $5!  If you missed the video tutorial you can check it out HERE!

Well, I’m off to continue my bathroom renovation but I will be back soon to share my progress!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Do y’all fabulous ladies have a tutorial somewhere explaining how you distress/stain your woods? I love the way these look, but I’m not very familiar with staining/distressing. I tried staining a pallet once and let’s just say it didn’t turn out like this haha. Thanks in advance!

    You guys are FABULOUS! 🙂 Love reading and watching all your stuff. Super cute low-cost decorating! (And fun too!) I live in the Dominican Republic and we are without a lot of home decor stores. I will definitely be using some of these ideas in my new apartement!

    I would love to do this. Where did you get the crates from? I have no idea where to look for some.

    Love the contrast of the dark stain with the white accents!
