Wood Crate Toy Storage


If your initial reaction to crate storage was ick it’s going to look cheap and nasty I hope this shelving unit will change your mind. It’s bright and colourful, and I am totally in love with that string of fairy lights! Just make sure the crates you pick up don’t have any coating on them or the paint won’t stick.
