  1. Love the painted wine boxes for shelving! The assorted neutral colors accent the walls and general décor beautifully.

    If your looking for original wine boxes or crates for future projects visit Winepine

  2. I love these! For the white wall hangings I think I’m going to try using glue (like regular white elmer’s glue) and then spray paint instead of using letters. I’ll have to let you know how it goes! Great stuff 🙂
