One of the negative point people often mention when they are talking about storage solutions is how unattractive it can be. Go to Ikea and you will find acres and acres of plastic boxes that work well but look pretty horrible if we are being honest. If only there was some way to make storage more attractive.
Vintage Apple Crates do just that. Using sourced genuine vintage apple crates that have been sanded down, the sturdy and roomy crates are perfect for storing a range of objects. They have a gorgeous rustic look that will appeal to lovers of vintage and retro styling, but as they have also been upcycled, they are totally in keeping with our passion for recycling and reusing objects, something that is becoming more and more important in our ever throwaway society.
One of their most popular and useful products is their Muddy Boots crate. With Winter firmly taking a grip we are all looking for somewhere to store those wet and snowy wellies, and this continues into Spring, when rain brings us muddy paths and parks, particularly in semi rural areas like the one I live in. The muddy boots crate is roomy ( Crate Size: 50cm Length x 40cm Depth x 30cm Height) and attractive, with vintage style lettering on the front that has been hand stenciled to match in with the rustic/vintage feel.
Each crate has a larger gap under the top slat in each side so they can be easily carried when full. This means you can carry it outside when the weather warms up, and keep it somewhere inside, whether than be a shed or garage, or, like me, kept in the conservatory near to the back door so you can take your boots straight off when you come in from the garden.
How you store your boots is up to you, you can stand them up neatly, or just through them in, either way is fine – you may find more room for storage is they are thrown in randomly like I have done.
I love the vintage look and feel of the muddy boots crate and think they are a great addition to any home.
