Paint or Stain Crates
Paint or stain crates as desired with spray paint. Let dry completely.
From scrap paper, cut rectangles sized to the bottoms of crates. Arrange the paper patterns on wall with masking tape. (Tops of crates can also be used for storage space.)
Apply Strips to Crates
Follow directions on packaging to apply strips to backs of the crates. Use up to four strips per crate. Each large strip holds 4 pounds; with 4 strips, crates can hold up to 16 pounds.
Follow directions for strips to hang crate on wall, making sure the crate is level. Continue hanging crates, replacing paper patterns.
