Innovation: Crate Shelving
As you probably know, Furnish Green is all about turning old into new. So we’d like to share one of our favorite innovations with you: the Crate Shelf.
This is a really fun and simple way to create custom shelving, storage or decoration for any room in your home. As many of our New York customers know, there’s always a need for extra storage space. This method adds a simple touch of rustic charm. All you need is a vintage wood crate (we always try to have them in stock), a pair of shelf brackets (use decorative brackets for an extra oomph), a drill, plastic anchors and handful of drywall screws.
All you have to do is secure the brackets to your wall with the drywall screws and plastic anchors. Make sure they’re level, of course. Place the crate on its side on top of the brackets. Secure the crate to the brackets with short screws through small pre-drilled holes. If need be, you can add an extra L bracket to the top of the shelf for extra support. That’s it! You can use an assortment of different shapes and sizes to make the perfect arrangement for your space. Place them at different levels or have some that are hung vertically and some horizontally. This will create an awesome shadowbox effect, so we recommend taking a playful approach. The crate shelves are prefect to store your favorite books or showcase your accent pieces and souvenirs. And if you’re feeling extra creative, integrate lighting and flat shelves into the installation, like we did in our showroom.
These new arrivals would make great shelves, with tons of space. $39 apiece!
We’re maybe a little too excited about this, but it’s just so simple and perfect! We hope you give this a try and love it as much as we do. Let us know if you need any more pointers!
