Crate Inspiration

A couple of months ago I bought some vintage crates at auction. Not enough to create a wall of storage like this from Living Etc unfortunately but I did get four similar to the one pictured below.

They were Polish and one of them was dated 1959 so I reckoned they were all around the same date. These crates are my favourite kind of storage, practical and beautiful. I had sometimes seen them used as display in shops but never for sale so I was thrilled to get them at the auction. I managed to part with two since this is supposed to be a business and my "finds" are supposed to be stock so selling half of them was a step in the right direction at least.

The two I sold on Donedeal were bought by the lovely Claire who kindly sent these photos above and below of the crates (adapted with castors) hard at work in her home.
