When we moved in, there were these really cool crate shelves already in the kitchen. I liked them, but knew they could be turned into something better. We were painting the whole house, and so I figured a quick and easy solution would be to paint them white or cream, along with the trim. After painting just the pull-out shelves, I realized how tedious it would be to paint the rest. The problem was I had already put one coat of paint on one of the crate insides.
After I had resolved to paint it, my mom had an idea. Why not paint just one shelf and paint our initial in the background? That way, I wouldn't have to paint the entire unit.
I LOVE the way it turned out.
I even like the imperfections in the A.
And now I don't have to spend hours and hours painting all that raw wood! Success. Thanks mom.
