Vintage Crate and Wire Basket Shelves

I made these super easy shelves from vintage soda crates and vintage wire baskets. All you have to do is:
- Drill 2 holes in each crate (I drilled mine in the center back plank of the crate on either side)
- Attach crate to the wall with screws and anchors (if needed) using the holes you drilled in the crate.
- Repeat the process and hang more crates side by side or on top of each other either horizontally or vertically.
- Combine the crates with some vintage wire baskets, by drilling two holes and anchors/screws in the wall, hang basket on screws.
- Decorate to your heart's content!

    I am so in love with these shelves <3 The way that the crates and baskets aren't aligned, but the project as a whole still looks balanced is really fantastic. Beautifully designed!
