I had a picture of my boys that I wanted to frame. I have so many of them now thanks to my friend, Michelle. It was printed and mounted on a foam board like backing already. Sometimes that thickness will not fit in a traditional frame. I was looking around my house for a different way to display rather than just without a frame.
I took the wooden crate that I purchased from Elizabeth and Co's tag sale last year and put it up on its side. Then I placed the picture inside of the crate. It was the perfect fit. This could easily be mounted on a wall too. I may have to hunt for more crates at her tag sale today.
This was just a plain old crate before I added the picture, and I think it makes the crate look cute! I love crates because they have so many great uses around the house. Do you have any crates in your house? How do you use them?
