Well,

I am not new to craftster, but for sure this is my firts time posting in this category. My husband and I have loads of books and other items we need shelving for, so always i am in need for more. Some time ago i saw at Target a very nice and funky room divider / shelving unit - but way too expensive for us  Cheesy So .... when i saw some wooden crates at Jo-Ann i was sure i can do something with them ..... to my surprise they were on sale, and not for the 6.99 bucks they advertised them but for ...... 75 cents a piece - well this was a steal so i bought all the crates the store had .... about 16 in total ..... and i used 14 to make this:

1. the begining ....



2. in the middle



3. And the end:



I hope you like it  Kiss

That is BRILLIANT!!!! I love it...wish we had a Joann's in the UK Cry

We built HUGE shelves using breeze blocks (cinder blocks) and wood we just had lying around but they are not as attractive as yours!!!

Great job - and what a steal at 75 cents each!!!   Of course how could you do anything but a great job with those beautiful supervisors?

Oh, I'm so jealous. I have been looking for crates like that for ever, but I can't find any for under $15 a piece. I have wanted to make shelving for my fabric, and books, and everything else I have.

I love your execution! It is really professional looking! Great Great job!!!

This is way too cool an idea.  I love it.  I wish I could find a bunch of $.75 crates!

Thanks for the good words! I was very surprised when the crates were scanning at 0.75 a piece .... i was afraid it was a glitch in the system so of course i ran out of the door as quick as possible  Cheesy

That is soooo awesome! Bookcases are stupidly expensive, that's a great solution! Will you come to my house and build me one?!  Grin
