making more crates
After making my first crate and enjoying the storage space,
I realized we needed more.
We have a small pantry, with no space for drinks.
And with the kids packing their lunch everyday,
there are a lot of milk boxes and juice pouches.
Even Mon Cheri adds to the volume with his V8.
So what's a crafter to do but built some more?
I ironed the picture printed on contact paper with laser printer like on my tutorial.
It is extremely fast, about 1-2 minutes on a flat surface!
For the bigger crate I kept the same depth, but made it wider.
Once again I ironed a cool pic from the Graphics Fairy-DIY.
Here is a detail of the pictures,
the transfers are pretty good, not perfect, but it gives them an antique look.
Since there is no drying time with this technique,
I stained the crates right away with early american
And here there are in "action!"
That's what I call major improvement!
It is pretty, less messy and the puppy chews way less cardboard!
Now I really need to address the top of this cart,
we use the top for all the school papers and homework,
pencils and other random things that arrive from school or mail....
must find a way to fix this "area"...
luckily I have some scraps of wood,
I am sure I will think of something!
