those are too fun....what a huge difference!

Krissy Harris

Awesome! I love it!


I *LOVE* this idea! Especially since I can get those crates at my local Dollar Store! I'll be linking to this!


What a wonderful idea! I'm always looking for cute ways to store things.

Oh, I'm so going to make these! Thanks for the tutorial!


That is such a great idea!!! I am always wanting to spend way too much money on pretty storage containers because I can't stand the plastic crates, but this is the perfect solution!!!


Terrific idea! I'm going to do this for my kids' rooms! I also looooove your painted dresser - great colors. I check your blog out all the time and I think your art is so beautiful. Keep it up!


AH! I remember these! Even cuter in person! :)


Sooooo great! I was wondering how to make the storage for a new studio inexpensive and pretty at the same time. It also covers the need for something with a "custom" touch.

Thanks for being willing to share!:)


Great idea Laura - and the fabrics you have used are so yummy too. I can't wait for my order to arrive...... Thanks for the tutorial :)


I LOVE IT!!! Thank you! They look amazing and I really love the inexepensive part:) I am going to make some for a college girl I know for her dorm room too.


What a great way to cover up the ugly plastic and make something beautiful and useful. The best kind of project!



I got over here from One Pretty Thing - I love the crates. What a cute idea! I may have to pull out my sewing machine for these. :)

How wonderful! They are gorgeous! Especially with the covered brad--such a pretty little touch! Thanks so much for the tutorial ;-)


This is really neat! I cannot wait to give it a try! Your fabric choices are what really make this stand out.

What am I doing this week you ask? I'm slip covering crate boxes. Thank you!!!

totally lovely, laura!
Love these digs! the covers are so sweet. the painted fushia dresser is so great, too...with the green leafy branches and birds.
yay! You made my day.


I will be making some of these for Christmas presents!!!


I just found your blog and I am so happy about it! I love it! These covered crates are such a great idea. What a fun way to add some color. I'm always looking for creative storage ideas for my too-small-with-no-closets house.

Look forward to reading more!
