EDITOR’S NOTE: This week’s Trick to Try is a personal one… it’s from my own apartment! We love scouring flea markets and vintage shops. We began collecting vintage crates, but quickly ran out of places to keep them. In our place, we decided to use one as a shelf. With a few strategically placed nails, it’s a secure spot that houses all of our favorite plants and treasures. If you’re looking for shelving to keep books and magazines, just use a wider crate. It’s the perfect solution for an eclectic space!
