DIY – Decoupaged Produce Crate

March 3, 2018

More crate love! If you remember my post on the Farmhouse Crates, I had a pile of old crates that needed attention.

This produce crate had a cardboard body similar to chip board.


Since the chip board was so sturdy I wanted to try and work with it.

The chip board was stained so I added a thin coat of Kilz over the messiest places. I wasn’t sure if the stains would bleed through my decoupage but I wanted to hedge my bets just in case.

I also sanded and stained the wood ends.

Then it was time to decoupage. I loved the way my kitchen island turned out with the surface covered with old cookbook pages so I used that as my inspiration. These pages are actually from the same book. I covered the entire body, inside and out, with the pages.

A little digging through my hardware stash revealed the perfect handles for the ends.
