I noticed a wood crate shelving unit a couple of 12 months in the past at an vintage retailer in Fredricksburg, Texas about 6 months in the past and I fell in love with it. I used to be so completely satisfied when I discovered this Youtube video, so I might lastly make this shelving dream I used to be having a actuality. I began by going to JoAnn Materials and getting 11 wood crates, which have been just about “within the uncooked” with no end in any respect, so I stained them with Minwax.
Then I organized the crates on the ground in a illustration of how I needed to see them on the wall.
Then I used to be prepared to put in them, utilizing a drill and drywall screws that got here with plastic anchor jackets. It was really easy and enjoyable! I mounted them on the wall in the lounge to show my assortment of wood safari animals. I had moved the animals throughout my condominium and now they actually had a house the place they may shine in all their glory. After I began arranging them I had one other thought to place vegetation throughout them so they’d actually appear like they have been within the jungle, then I had all these African Commerce Beads hanging round and I made necklaces for all of them, that regarded fabulous. There was nonetheless one thing lacking although, the animals wanted some surroundings within the background. So I discovered some previous mirrors I had purchased at a yard sale and a few small watercolor sunsets I had executed in my final 12 months’s artwork class and positioned them behind the animals and vegetation and that gave it the wow issue. I had some pals over that night and so they went wild the second they noticed my DIY Wood Crate Shelving Unit. I actually put a brand new twist on the run of the mill nonetheless life tableau.
