Vintage Crate Upcycle Inspiration

I was walking around outside in the 70 degree weather we had on Saturday- I found these crates and decided to see some ideas for upcycling them! So like any upcycling project- I started with pinterest. Click the images to go to the blogs that originally posted them. 
Make a vintage crate boot rack! 

Or take it a step further and make an entire bookcase!

crates of different sizes and depths make an eye catching display- items can be displayed on top, inside or hung from the crates!

Keep it simple and show off your spring blossoms

April Pinterest Round-Up- Let's get Planting

We seem to have FINALLY made it to the other side of winter! Here's a roundup of some spectacular refurbished planters from Pinterest. Galvanized Steel and repurposed garden tools are on trend this season!

A simple metal bucket and watering can painted white to match these beautiful daisies. 

Galvanized metal wash tub with star decal

Tulips and eggs in this distressed/aged metal watering can make a lovely Easter welcome bouquet. 

Antique steel wheel barrow for these Hydrangeas
(You can move this wherever you need extra colors!)

Succulents in an old boot!

Ladders make great tiered garden displays- this one features antique bakeware, birdhouses, and boots for an eclectic primitive feel. 

Antique soda chest repurposed as a planter. 

Use a mesh screen where the drain is to make this cast iron sink a lovely planter- shown here atop a sewing table's legs.
