When I was trying to decorate the baby E’s room I needed something to hold his little toys. I wanted to put a little patriotic element to his room. I was excited when I found these cute plain wood crates, they were sold and perfect size. I knew I could turn it into something cool and came up with this DIY Flag Crate.
This DIY Flag Crate is a great way to decorate on a budget. You can use it to decorate a kids room, the living room or just for one of the Patriotic holidays. With these step by step directions it is easy to have a beautiful piece even if you are not the craftiest of people 🙂 You can find these crates at Michael’s craft stores and use their 40% off coupons or any craft store near you should have them. I have also seen them on Amazon for $5-$6!

Remove the painters tape. Place a new strip of tape to protect the edge of the blue paint. Start at the top and paint the first and third slat red, let dry. Remove all painters tape.
