Reuse Crates & Drawers

This is my last "reuse & upcycle" items.
I had these drawers and wine crates in my storage room, waiting for their turn...
After treatment and clean, I painted them with ASCP: Aubusson blue + Arles on one drawer and Barcelona orange + black chalboard paint on the other one.
I fixed a waxed crate on the wall as rollpaper storage; unscrewed the paper holder and fit it back into the drawer.
I stenciled a little wood plank with the "wash" word on it.
The second drawer is now a perfect jewelry organizer!
The wine crates have been painted with Provence, French linen and Emperor's silk ASCP too; I wallpapered two of them.
Final result: the perfect bathroom storage.

    I have ones in my livingroom that house all my favorite framed photos, with a few unframed ones tucked between the others. I also have one in my bathroom with an eclectic mix of storage and decor. The decor is also hung on the exterior top corners, flush with the top and hanging down to create a framework type feel. Lastly, i have one in my kitchen. I inserted shelving and made a spice rack.
