You guys!!! Today I am sharing a vintage crate upcycle that may be my all-time favorite find EVER!
I turned this vintage find into a modern planter.
Take a peek and I am sure you will see why.
For $35.00 I was dancing with glee.
Although I spell my name “Libbie” and I was actually tormented as a child by the Libby’s jingle, I have always wanted to find one of these crates.
Carrying it to the register I had the perfect plan in mind.
I couldn’t wait to get started!
First I wiped the crate down and used a bit of wood conditioner to bring the colors back.
While I was wiping it down I noticed a few nails that were sticking out so we hammered them back in.
Just lightly tap the nails back into the crate.
Since I was going to use the vintage crate as a planter, I wanted to put a few coats on the crate to protect it from the elements.
This fast-drying poly from Minwax is my favorite.
When searching for legs, I found hairpin legs at a reasonable price on Amazon.
I knew that I wanted this piece to be pretty tall.
The legs took maybe five minutes to add.
Seriously the easiest DIY ever.
Vintage crate to Modern Planter in less than 30 minutes (plus shipping time for the legs) 🙂
Just add plants!
Truly this made me so happy!
Do you have a vintage find that just made you clap your hands in glee? I’d love to hear about it.
Until next time,
