A while back I saw this on Pinterest from The Marion House Book. I knew immediately that this was a perfect solution to organizing and displaying my son’s “stuff”. The first thing I did was start collecting crates from flea markets. I love going to flea markets, but I find it even more fun when I have something in particular that I’m searching for. It did not take long before I had enough crates. I studied the photo from Pinterest and knew that, aside from the black walls which I already loved was that they had used a little white to break up the dark from the wood crates and the black wall.
Total cost of the project was just under $100. The crates ranged from $5 to $25 and the small white cube shelf from The Container Store was less than $20. Everything else was packed up from his California room. I marked the box “Patrick’s display wall” and it took us about 10 minutes to unpack and find a place for everything. If only every project was that easy.
