So cute and so fitting with our rustic style. All I had to do was find an old antique crate...And a quick trip to a nearby antique store solved that problem. There were actually quite a few to choose from. The crate I found had some VERY old and worn out writing on it and I wanted to be able to see the writing. Part of the charm right? So I decided to paint over the letters and darken them up a bit. I just used some black craft paint.
Then all I had to do was bat my eyes at my husband a few times to get him to screw the wheels on. Ask for "Casters" if you are heading to Home Depot by yourself. I may have been able to screw them in myself....but since this was such a delicate project, I decided to leave it to the man.
Be sure to use the shortest screws you can find to screw on the casters (wheels). And depending on the thickness of the wood on your crate, they may poke through a little bit. Mine do a little, but since its only magazines going in there, it should be fine.
Hope this inspired you to re-purpose some of your own vintage treasures!
