Obsession: Wooden Crates and Boxes

January 21, 2011

As far as storage goes, you can't beat wooden crates and boxes. They're super durable, versatile, and a lot nicer to look at than most of the other options out there. You can use them as extra storage in your closet (not that you'd want to hide them or anything), drill them on your wall as bookshelves, shelf your plants near a window... endless possibilities.

Only problem: where can they be found? I've managed to spot a few here and there at local thrift stores, but I'm always on the lookout.

  1. Wooden boxess are wonderful and they come in so many shapes and styles. You might look at liquor stores for wine boxes, I used to see them there and they were very sturdy.

  2. Old wooden boxes can be hard to find. I'd look at more antique-y type stores. But once you find them, you'll soon learn that if they're in good condition, they're pricey. But so pretty!
