After getting my hands on this old crate, I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it. I thought I might turn it into a little shelving unit, but in our old apartment we didn't really have anywhere to hang it, or anything to put in it. After moving, I realized that we had the perfect place for the crate hanging over our bar and it could hold some salt and pepper shakers that were currently homeless.
Tim finally got around to hanging it on Sunday and I couldn't be happier. We hopefully will be adding a small shelf in the center of the crate, but right now, I'm happy with it. And now my salt and pepper shakers have a home and aren't in the way anymore. Double success!
All we did to hang the crate was attach two heavy-duty picture hangers on the back and hang on two nails in the wall. If you wanted to put something heavier in the crate, you might want to make sure it won't pull out from the wall. Since mine is just holding small odds and ends, the picture hangers will work just fine.
Have you done anything fun with crates?
