Well it’s definitely been a while since I’ve done anything crafty. Life has taken over in every good way possible. I’m settling in nicely and I really enjoy my job now that I know halfway what I’m doing.
After finishing up my industrial entertainment center, I felt like under the bottom shelf needed a little something. Since I live in an apartment, I’ll take all the storage I can get. I found these crates at Jo-Anns and snatched them up pretty quick. They were the perfect size!
I knew that I was going to paint them. I also knew that I wanted to do a little something more to “dress” them up. You can find the industrial entertainment center post HERE.
I posted this picture on Instagram (follow me at hannahyoungandcrafty). I used plain ole white Kilz paint. It took 3 coats to cover them really well.
I then got this old leather belt I had hanging in my closet. It had started to bend where the holes were so I never wore it anymore.
I cut 3 pieces all the same length. To be honest I just eyeballed how long I wanted them.
Next I screwed them in with a screwdriver. Again, I just eyeballed each one. In case you were wondering, I am not a perfectionist in the least!
What have you done to “dress” up wooden crates?? I would love to see pictures!
