DIY: Floating Wood Crate Storage Shelves

DIY: Floating Wood Crate Storage Shelves

main - diy crate shelving 1 on astral-riles Today I just wanted to give a quick update on my home office / craft room redesign. Hopefully, I will be totally done with the space by next week. A quick & relatively inexpensive storage solution is wooden crates. I purchased a bunch of pre-fabricated, unfinished wooden crates from The Home Depot. Tools & Materials Used: - Hammer - Wood Crates - 2" Common Nails - Level I chose to float the crates because the baseboards + the shoe molding would've prevented me from getting the 1st row of crates flush with the wall. And this way, I can even store something underneath the crates if I wanted to. diy shelving 2 »»»»SUBSCRIBE TO MY BLOG«««« [mc4wp_form] diy shelving I used a level and sat it on top of the crate in order to make sure everything was straight before I began hammering in the nails. Each crate is individually nailed to the wall. The crates are not nailed to each other. I choose to leave the crates unfinished. Trying to stain them would have been unnecessary work...and a pain in the butt. Besides, the unfinished look flows well with the rest of the wood furniture in the room.
