Wood Crates {DIY}

As I showed yesterday, my pantry is newly reorganized and a bit updated. 

One of my favorite details in the new pantry is these wooden crates: 

{yes, that is my dog making a little cameo as I tried to take a picture!}

These guys started plain jane, but with a quick sanding and a coat of paint they look so different!

These crates were purchased at Home Depot, they might be seasonal (found in the entry of the store) I paid under $6 for each!! 

By staining the wood with rustoleum {american walnut} they look so different! 

I added stencils {cut with my Silhouette} and black acrylic paint.

In a nod to our time in the Army, we made a "B" rations container. Right now the ice shaver is being stored in this bin, but I think in time I expect food will be stored here.

And in a nod to my time working for the American Red Cross, our emergency bin {just some towels, a blanket, change of clothes, flash lights, emergency radio, and a place to store the extra crap I decide we urgently need if a tornado destroys our house...}

A nice touch, right?
