Two-Tone Storage Crate

I love a quick and easy Sunday afternoon project.  This one was cheap, too, so… Trifecta!!!

Here’s a thing I did to get more organized in my bathroom.  My bathroom is REALLY small, so believe me, I need all of the storage and organization I can get.

I bought two little crates at a thrift store for 25c each.  They were bare wood, and frankly, a little boring.

I took some stain that I had lying around (Varathane American Walnut) and stained the outside.  One coat, no fuss.

Then I used a careful hand and a paint sample that I bought a couple of years ago (Valspar Sweet Mint) to paint the inside. Two coats, minimal fuss.

The dark stain mimics my floors and the light, blue-green paint hue matches one of the colors in my shower curtain.  I love it!

Side note: I invoked my red sticker rule and bought that Nate Berkus rug at Target for $10.98!  Pretty, pretty.

My little crates are perfect for facewash, lotion, body spray and the like.

I already had all of the supplies for this project, so, it felt “free” to me.  But, you could probably re-create this for less than $20.  All you need is a couple of storage crates, wood stain and paint!

Do you have a cute way of organizing things in your bathroom?  I’d love to see… Link in the comments section!
