I adore vintage crates. They add instant warmth and character to a space, and they are less costly than a piece of furniture.My friend Heather recently purchased a small cheese crate from my shop for bathroom organization (such a lovely idea!)
In our toy room we keep dress up costumes in an apple crate, use a vintage metal milk crate for play kitchen equipment, and a pepsi crate for any leftover toys.
I hope to find a large crate soon for blankets. They are a must in autumn and winter! Do vintage crates blend with your style?
