I’ve wanted to replace our bookshelf for awhile. I couldn’t find anything I really liked until I found these crates at Michael’s. I was the girl in the middle of the aisle stacking crates to see if it would work and imagining how it would look. It looked great so I bought six and this is what I did:
I did one coat of ebony wood finish. *If you like this wood finish don’t stir the can, if you do your finish will be blackÂ and notÂ rustic. Allow a few days to fully dry and then BAM! You have a new bookshelf.
I’m so happy with the way it turned out. There’s nothing like a small library in your living room to make it cozy, but you don’t have to make this a bookshelf,Â you could display anything you like. Happy nesting!
