Using Crates for Interior Design
Crates are boxes or platforms made from wooden slates. They are used to transport or stack various merchandise. Crates are generally pretty dirty by the time they are no longer used, so if you plan on using them inside your house, they will need a good scrubbing. You can either use them with a natural look by simply sanding them down or you can give them a coat of paint for a more coordinated look with the rest of your furniture and decor.
