Crate Style Gift Box or Storage Box

This turned out so much better then I thought and can be used for so many things, I thought as a nice Christmas Eve box or some nice Christmas storage.

I distressed everything with some brown inks and added some rope for the handles which I think makes it look more authentic.

  1. Such a cute crate to have on display, especially at the Holiday time. This would be so cute also sitting on the bathroom sick with towels in it. TYFS
