In the midst of all things boy room we decided to have a yard sale to get rid of some of the extra junk that’s been lying in the way, making it hard to get work done on several other rooms of the house. Mainly, we had to clear out a chunk of the attic for the central air and heat ducts that were installed over the last two weeks.
As we were pulling down items from the attic, we found two fruit crates leftover from hubs grandmother’s estate sale. Originally, I put them in the yard sale pile but I’m glad I decided to keep them. The boys needed some storage so I came up with a plan to use the crates for storing books.
Next I gave the raw wood a coat of Minwax Early American Stain. Now they’re fresh and clean with a nice antique look.
