Ok I am officially addicted to the graphics fairy! I have been painting crates! So easy! You need to go to www.graphicsfairy.blogspot.com and find some art you really like! I purchased the crates at Micheals for 14.00. Use a forty percent off coupon on your phone and get one even cheaper. I stained the box. It looks so much better! Then use a charcoal pencil on the back side of the artwork you chose. Then tape it to your box. Use the sharpie permanent marker to trace the artwork. You have to really bear down! Then take the paint marker and paint what you traced! Tada! That's it! Now stack them up and use them for shelves, displays, towels, wine bottles, whatever. Have fun!
