The Most Simple Shelf EVER

So since we’re outgrowing our home I had to get creative with how to arrange the living room. This also meant putting holes in the wall so we could get our TV off of the floor and mount it, this was not something I have wanted to do at all.

I had a small TV stand in the corner the TV sat one along with 3 crates stacked on the floor to serve as decoration space. Well I decided to add to those crates and create an entire shelving area that I could put decorations on under the TV. It’s also nice because since it is situated in a corner we can put stuff behind it and you don’t see it 🙂

I had the same stain that I used on the first 3 crates which just so happen to be the 3 on the bottom of the shelf. So we stained the other 5 crates to match and then just screwed them all together so it could be moved as one unit.

The entire project probably only took about an hour if you don’t include stain drying time. I picked up the additional crates at JoAnn Fabric who was running sale of 50% off of crates. I think I got each crate for like $8 or $9 and I got the first 3 at Michaels with my 40% coupon.

Stupid easy I promise or I wouldn’t have even thought or attempted to do it! Hurry get to the stores to get your crates and stain and make the same project! Let me know how yours turns out.
