diy wood crate bookcase

i have been pinning projects like this for as long as i’ve been on pinterest and i finally got around to it!  yay for more hours in the day in summer!

diy wood crate bookcase

 last week i shared our new chalkboard wall with you in our playroom/school room/my office/studio space.  its a space that needs to be super functional, and because of that we’ve lost a lot of the “pretty”.  i decided it was time to add that back in!

this wall used to have rain gutter bookshelves.  while i liked how they looked, i didn’t like how they functioned.  i love the look of the chalkboard wall as is, but since this is our school room, it really needed to function as more than a pretty wall displaying our world map.

we need book storage.  and lots of it.  every year our homeschool library expands.  we have never had a great bookshelf system that worked well with books of different subjects, time periods, and reading levels.  they were squeezed into what little space i could find to fit them all together and that just wasn’t working for us.

i ordered these great wood crates from and got free shipping on them (free shipping with orders over $45).  our home depot doesn’t carry these crates in store, but even if they did i would probably have ordered them online anyway.  can you imagine trying to get all of these balanced on a huge cart, while my little monkey tried climbing all over them?  no thank you.  i’ll take front door delivery, thank you very much!

while the color of the natural pine is really pretty, i wanted to age the outside of the crates a bit so they would be a nice contrast to the bright colors i was going to be adding.  thankfully, i had a few small pots of minwax stain in my garage that worked great.  i used mostly walnut, mixed in a bit of ebony, and thinned it out a bit with natural.  use what you have, right?

my mom and i spent a few hours late after the kids were sleeping (its been hot here, so the evening hours are much cooler for working), staining the crates.   the process was pretty simple:  we only stained the outsides of the crate since i was painting the insides.  we also did all the edges with the stain.  we didn’t bother staining the under sides (bottoms) of the crate since they would be against the wall and never be seen.  the pine is very porous so we just used inexpensive chip brushes and wiped off the stain quickly with rags before the color set in too dark.  you really can’t mess up unless you just let it sit without wiping it.  other wise its a very forgiving process.

 all the colors of paint i used were ones i found in the garage or in my craft paint piles.  i wanted a rainbow of colors, so whatever i didn’t have on hand i made by adjusting existing cans of paint with craft paints.

this is a sponsored giveaway post with Proctor & Gamble and The Home Depot.  they are holding a #BountyChallenge and their only prerequisite was to use Bounty to clean up our mess.  good thing, too, because we were messy!

diy wood crate bookcase

 i am not much of a perfectionist when it comes to home projects.  i’m more of a “looks good” girl.  get’er done, you know?  so i knew mistakes would happen and thats no big deal.  i really wanted to be able to see the stained edges of the wood next to the brightly painted interior, so i had to be careful not to paint too heavily at the edges or it would run over.  and it did, but i just slightly wet a Bounty paper towel and wiped the excess paint right off!

those little bottles of acrylic paint sure are messy!  i was using up the last of several bottles and had lots of paint splatters through the process.

diy wood crate bookcase

 after we finished painting all the boxes (most needed 2 coats of paint), it was time to play!

diy wood crate bookcase

 while i still had them in the garage it was fun playing with a few ideas of how to configure the boxes to work best as a bookcase.

diy wood crate bookcase

 i needed the boxes to sit both vertically and horizontally to fit the various sizes of our books.

and  i love the contrast of the bright bookcase against the dark chalkboard wall!

diy wood crate bookcase

 i filled in the shelves with all of our school books and thankfully still have room for more.  and then i moved all of the school and art supplies to the top shelves.

i love that this isn’t a fixed set of shelves, mostly because i change my mind a lot.  like i’m not sure how long i’ll be keeping the school supplies up there.  thankfully, the shelves are really sturdy stacked 2 high and weighed down by the weight of the books.  soon enough i’m sure i’ll try out the rainbow order of crates when i get bored of this!

    These are so cute. Great job!

  2. 2

    I have some adirondack chairs that need staining! This is the perfect giveaway to get me motivated to finish them!

  3. 3

    Oh my gosh, my projects are endless! We moved last December and the to-do list is still so long. I have a huge chalkboard from an old school so right now i’m working on cleaning it up and giving it a fresh coat of chalkboard paint. :)

  4. 4

    I have several painting projects that I would love to complete!

    Emily K. says:

    I could use this gift card for some DIY projects for my wedding!

  6. 6

    I would totally do this project – how fun! I have a bunch of picture frames I’d love to do this way too – a perfect cleanup job for Bounty and a perfect opportunity for some new colors from Home Depot!

  7. 7

    We are finishing our basement and could definitely use this for that!

  8. 8

    I’m getting ready (well..have been getting ready for months) to paint some chevron onto an accent wall and Bounty paper towels are perfect for cleaning up the mess that I know is going to be happening!

  9. 9

    I’d love to win and I’d give my deck and garage a good cleaning!

  10. 10

    Great giveaway, thanks! I’d use bounty on all the home reno projects we have going right now! Cleaning newly installed cupboards, painting chairs for the craft room (much like what you’ve shown here), and getting all the dust (chalky soot) and grime off everything in this house! It’s amazing how much renovations in one part of the house can affect all the others!

  11. 11

    The wall and bookcases look amazing! LOVE it! I used a couple of crates for my son’s bookshelf too but love how you painted and arranged them. May have to do a little rearranging of my own! ;)

  12. 12

    Clean up the grill and the patio umbrella!!

  13. 13

    Tile our backsplash in our kitchen

  14. 14

    I like how the crates can hold books large & small. I have books in baskets in the kids room & it’s just not working for us anymore….I sense a new project in my future!
    Quick question…..I thought you mentioned in a previous post you were renting your house. How did Yiu ask your landlord to paint the chalkboard wall. Bc we are renting now since we moved and everything is that same drab color. Thanks- deana

      lindsey says:

      we own our home, not renting. i say it doesn’t hurt to ask if you can paint, and just offer to repaint when you leave. or get a huge sheet of thin mdf from the home depot for under $10 and paint that with chalkboard paint, frame it and hang it on your wall. it comes in 4×8 ft sheets.

    Valerie B says:

    Love those colors! The last one of my kiddos is moving out soon and her room will be my new (magnificent, of course) sewing room. Lots of staining and painting will be happening!

    Tara Van Moorsel says:

    I have challenged myself to tackle the much neglected front porch this summer. There will be more than a few rolls of Bounty paper towels used on that sucker.

  17. 18

    I love your crates! I always use Bounty to clean up messes when I’m painting.

  18. 19

    We are finishing our basement so I have several DIY Projects in mind. :)

    susan bourgeois says:

    I am gearing up to paint a wall of built ins in our home office as well as the cabinets. Being a messy painter, I would be using them to clean up as I go! Not to mention the gift card would come in handy for paint and supplies:)

  20. 21

    We are busy changing two bedrooms from little girls rooms to college bound and high school bound rooms. LOTS of messes are happening when you are letting your children create what they want. They will be amazing but I’m not a fan of messes. Bounty is always my go too.

    btw….just showed my reader your amazing bookshelves. Just put those on our Room to-do list for her.

    I really want to make a headboard for our master bedroom

    I love these. I am a second grade teacher and would love to do something like this to add to my classroom library. Nice pop of color.

  33. 34

    I LOVE your book crates and I’m very tempted to do something similar except that I would also love to have a ceiling fan for the porch except that I reallyreallyreally want something new and pretty for my workroom except that we really need to fix up the bathroom, so keep the creative ideas coming! Thanks for the chance for the supplies and the gift card!

  34. 35

    great job! love the chalkboard wall and bookshelves…so so cute!

  35. 36

    So many projects but we are hoping to make a bench with storage for the patio.

  36. 37

    Love your bookshelf! I’ve always got some sort of furniture painting project up my sleeve–I’m certain I could put the paper towels to good use! ;o)

  37. 38
    Kelly D says:

    I would finish my basement and turn it into a computer/playroom. I know it’s a big challenge!

  38. 39

    I would use it to outfit my daughter’s room we are currently building. So much to do!

  39. 40

    Love the rainbow crates, so bright and cheery. I use Bounty every day, it is the only paper towel I use… My big project probably would be repotting all my plants into larger pots and equals lots of mess.

  40. 41

    Great project! LOVE the colors!

    I am thinking our little guy could use something like this in his room for his Star Wars collection! :)

  41. 42

    Fabulous project – I love the look! I would love to freshen up our deck with a new paint job and $250 would go along way towards that project and the paper towels, well, I’m a messy painter!

  42. 43

    I have a project on my list to ORB the exterior light fixtures around the house. The glass needs cleaning in addition to the painting. I’m also contemplating painting them without removing them from the wall, so I anticipate the need for quick overspray cleanup during the project! Your crates turned out great! So versatile and functional.

  43. 44
    jo wyrosdick says:

    I have used Bounty paper towels for years. It works great when painting in oils to wipe off paint brushes. They are the best!

  44. 45

    What project would I do? Well…cleaning. Actually. We’re about to move and my massive project will be packing and cleaning. Bring it on!

  45. 46

    How neat! I’ve had a project like that in mind for my guest room/office.

    They look great love them against the dark wall. Very cute idea! Really like your stain mix too. Crazy heat, stay cool!

  56. 57

    Chalkboard wall in the kitchen and that same crate bookshelf for the kids in the playroom.

    I have a lot of kid projects to start and finish- this would be perfect!

  63. 64

    We’ve been tackling all kinds of projects here since we plan to put our house on the market in the next month. We’ve been glazing all of our windows and painting all the trim around them and it has been a messy messy project! We’ve actually used quite a bit of Bounty! :)

  64. 65

    Love the bright colors and the arrangement of the crates!

  65. 66

    We are moving into a new house- Bounty is a staple when cleaning kitchen cabinets!!

  66. 67

    We are redoing one of our rooms for our son’s big boy room in preparation for our new baby. LOTS of stuff to do!

  67. 68

    These are precious! I’ve been pinning similar projects for months, but love the bright inside.

  68. 69

    Love this! We have a small chalkboard area, but you are seriously making me want to paint the whole wall!

    Mikaela says:

    Your crates look awesome. Love the color against the chalkboard wall. Super cute! As a teacher, I have a few projects I’ve come across on pinterest that I’d like to make for my classroom. Summer is the perfect time for stuff like this.

    Same thing. Love love.

  72. 73

    They look great! We are moving in about 4 weeks (Trent got a job in Rocklin) and I already have a list as long as my arm to what I would to do in the new place. LOTS of painting = LOTS of messes.

    I would finally finish painting our counter stools (so our kids would stop fighting over the ONE painted one).

  75. 76

    So many projects but I think I need to make some book shelves from crates too! Would be perfect for all the books my kids have!

  76. 77

    Long time reader here. I’m talking looong time! Lol. I don’t think Ive ever commented though, can you believe it! So I decided when I saw your cute crates, I must say hi and tell you I love them! Then I keep reading and there’s a give a way and I’m like what! So anyway, I love your blog Lindsay! I think it was about time you knew I was a pleatedpoppy fan. I think it makes it less creepy. I think, lol.

    Carrie Benson says:

    Bounty is my go-to cleaner-upper already! I use it for everything! Specifically for a project? Most likely for the desk I am working on for my son’s room. I am going to be applying maps to the top, and will likely be wiping up a lot of Mod Podge!

    Thanks for the chance to win such awesome prizes!

  87. 88

    From one “looks good” girl to another, it looks GREAT! Love the bright colors against the chalkboard wall!

I’m an avid DIY-er so I am constantly spending tons at home depot and flying through Bounty Paper towels, I’d love to win to support my habit!

  101. 102

    Love your wall and crate idea!!! We have an endless list of projects at our house. At the moment I’m picking out paint to paint our basement. I’m not the cleanest painter so using bounty paper towels would be a must! I also have a few small chairs and other small projects that need to be done where those would come in handy!

  102. 103
    Katie M. says:

  115. 117

    Love Bounty for dusting since I sneeze lots when dust flies around if you use feather duster.

  120. 122

    So cute! I love the pink and orange ones. Are they rough and splintery to the touch?

  121. 123

    Love the wall! Looks so great with the bright colors! We are probably moving soon, so I may save it for after the move and then make some DIY wall art. We are in need of wall are desperately. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  126. 128

    I would paint the kitchen

  127. 129

    How amazing would this be for our classroom! You did phenomenal! Hoping I win!

  130. 132

    I’m about to get married and then move into my future husbands bachelor pad. It needs some major updating.. can’t wait to get started!!

  131. 133

    I would paint the basement!

  132. 134

    We are HUGE bounty fans. They definitely help clean up all my painting messes. Hmmm… a big fat Home Depot gift card would help us get our massive shed project done…or 10 of my smaller home projects ;) As usual, LOVE this finished project! Looks so rustic, but cheery. Just perfect!

  133. 135

    I never would have thought to stain the outside and only paint the inside. Love this idea!

  134. 136

    I love this idea. We just moved so our to-do list is a mile long, first we have to come up with a way to organize our tiny closets so our boys can reach (and put away) what they need.

  135. 137

    LOVE your chalkboard wall….and the bookcase adds such a nice touch of color!!!!! Think I’d use the Home Depot card for a redo on a bedroom — paint/stencil

  136. 138

    I’ve been wanting to make some frames using different sizes of wood and trim, then painted, of course!

  137. 139
    Jessica Netherton says:

    Love how it turned out! Wall & shelves look great!

  138. 140

    I love the book cases!! I change my mind all the time too, so bookcases that can be easily reconfigured are perfect! We’ve paid attention to all of the other bedrooms in the house and now ours needs some work! A Home Depot gift card would certainly motivate us to finally get ‘er done!

  139. 141

    I love this idea! I might try to out some of these crates for craft storage…..I really love the bookshelf for children.

    Lindsay M says:

    We want to paint our kitchen cabinets but it would be so much easier with a paint sprayer!

  141. 143

    Those turned out great. Super cheerful and inviting for the kids to come learn.

  142. 144

    it’s time to paint another baby room! painting alone requires a lot of cleanup, not to mention wiping and prepping all of the baby furniture and tubs of toys and gadgets!

  143. 145

    Wow! Those are so cute! Have you thought about securing them together (with zip ties or something)? I can just see my kids rearranging them for me. :)

    I have a whole list of projects to tackle, mostly involving painting furniture and redecorating my living room. :)

    I am moving into my first apartment soon and have been looking for shelving ideas. This would be perfect! and great for my measley college kid budget as well!

  145. 147

    I’m not sure what project I would do for a Bounty Challenge… We use them all the time for cleaning up and even more when we paint. I love your chalkboard wall and crate bookshelf. Maybe I need to convert one of our school room walls!

  146. 148
    Missy G. says:

    I have so many pending projects in my house that I have a hard time getting motivated to do any! I guess free money would help, so my most pressing is to renovate our bathroom. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    Moriah@simplegifts says:

    These look really cute…may have to try something like this for all the books we are accumulating!

  148. 150

    I have a playroom I’m trying to redo and would try to tackle if I win! We need creative storage, I’d like a chalkboard space, and some painting to do.

  149. 151

    I would love to tackle the messy project of tiling my backsplash with white subway tile and gray grout! Love Bounty products and Home Depot! Your bookshelves are adorable. I love your home. It feels so happy!

  150. 152

    My current project I want to work on is an outdoor play fort like place for our kids. :) love the crates!

  151. 153

    Love all the colors!

  152. 154

    I would finally paint my dining room wall with chalkboard paint, I love how yours turned out!

  153. 155

    Love the look!

  154. 156

    we’ve just moved and there’s lots of things to be cleaned after being in storage for a while.

  155. 157

    Well besides every day cleanups, I would let the kids use them to make watercolor masterpieces! They’re the perfect texture :)


  156. 158

    I love this idea!

    For a few weeks, I bought one of those crates per week at AC Moore (the closest craft store to me) and use them in my garage on metal racks. I love the idea of using them inside for books!

  157. 159
    Jodi Goad says:

    Just moved into a new house…made a trip to Ikea and plan on ordering crates soon!

  158. 160
    Jessica R. says:

    We love Bounty paper towels! And, we love Home Depot!

    I’m planning on painting all of the baseboards/trim in our home, just to freshen them up before we sell in a year. I know that I’ll be using wet Bounty paper towels to wipe up any “oops” paint.

  159. 161
    Nicole Balogh says:

    We need to paint our bedroom ceiling!

  160. 162

    I’ve been need to make a bookcase for my living room, maybe this is the kick in the pants I need!

  161. 163

    i would definitely finish up my painting projects around here. i have paint for my kiddos rooms and need to do the trim in a couple places. now, just to find the time!

  162. 164

    Oh my gosh, that looks amazing!! I have been wanting to upgrade my laundry room…tile the floor, paint the walls, this would be a fantastic motivator!!

  163. 165

    Love the colorful against the dark wall. We are starting a messy bathroom fix/remodel, so it will definitely include many Home Depot trips and paper towels!

  164. 166

    We have a vintage buffet/dresser that the owner of the house left here that I am itching to clean up, stain and use!

  165. 167

  167. 169

    Love the crates! We have some plain terracotta pots that I want to paint with my girls. Then I will let them pick out their own flowers.

  168. 170

    Love it! I’m trying to figure out how to store all our school books too… perfect idea and I love your color choices!

      Chrissie Kimble says:

      Mostly I want to re-do the facade of our out-dated fireplace! I want to do the lap-board look painted white! I’d need alot of lumber from Home Depot!

    Erika W. says:

    I need to refinish my old kitchen table and coffee table!

  172. 175
    Sandy F. says:

    I love the crates! I would stack them on the deck with plants and things like paper plates and napkins. I could then (I hope) use the top as a buffet for serving dinner outside. I really like the painted insides and stained outsides – looks great!

  173. 176

    These would be so cute in my daughters’ playroom! Love the colors!

  174. 177

    I LOVE this project so much. Seriously. This wall is just fantastic and happy. Great job!!

  175. 178

    This might be the very project I would do. I have been wanting to make a wooden crate bookshelf for my sons room but was hoping I could find some amazing deal on crates first. A gift card like that would do the trick :)

  176. 179

    out kitchen countertops… I want to do polished cement !

  177. 180

    We’re moving soon so I am sure there are going to be plenty of cleaning with bounty this month. I especially need to clean the windows and window tracks. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I would love to try out the bounty for my x bookcase I want to make

  181. 184

    Love this! I’ve wanted to do something similar with crates but wasn’t sure where to find them. I never would’ve thought to look at Home Depot. Thanks for the inspiration!!!!
    I’m trying to work on our back porch area right now. I really want to hang outdoor lights and put cushions on some pallet furniture the hubs is making for me. That gift card would be amazing:)

  182. 185
    Angel w says:

    Love the colors you chose for this project!

  183. 186

    I have been slowing working on cleaning & organizing the house. I think the top project would be to clean up the finished basement area where my husband does his work and make it into a nicer office & area to hang out for the family. Maybe by the end of the summer we will have it done!

  184. 187

    I’m working in toy organization and we know that can get messy!!!!

  185. 188
    Caitlin Feilzer says:

    I use bounty when I’m painting lace to go on a canvas for a special painted sign that I like to make!

    Karen Mayer says:

    I have a few Bounty challenges today….I went to a HUGE flea market today and have 2 different dressers to paint. When I got home my dog had gotten sick on the rug – bonus challenge! Ugh.

  190. 193

    Oh what a great idea!!!!

  191. 194

    Working on an art project for the living room!

  192. 195

    I would detail my van w/bounty paper towels (it’s desperately needed)

  193. 196

    I have been waiting to see what this project was going to be. I love it. Had no idea Home Depot sold these crates. Thanks!

  194. 197

    This project looks fun but more practically speaking painting the kitchen cabinets has been on my to-do list for, oh, 7 years.

  195. 198

    Those crates are fantastic – great job!
    I want to paint my daughter’s desk a great coral color.

    Meshell says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!! I have been wanting to do this for a long time too. I love it!!

  197. 200

    I love those bookshelves. I am moving from a small office to a big classroom (I’m the speech therapist at my elementary school) and I would use the gift card and the bounty paper towels to do those exact same bookshelves!

  198. 201

    It seems that most of my projects right now center on using burlap and acrylic paint. Bounty works great to wipe up the paint that seeps through the fabric and to absorb any extra paint that gets out of the bottle.

  199. 202

    I LOVE the shelves! and of course the chalkboard wall ;)

  200. 203

    Wow! Just. Wow!

    I would put the money towards putting up ceiling tiles in our unfinished basement. Or perhaps staining and sealing the floor.

  201. 204

    Im in love with your surprise project!! We homeschool too, and have books everywhere. I see crates in my near future. Thank you for the inspiration!! I would use Bounty on my grill, it needs a good scrubbin’ for the summer!

  202. 205
    Keri from SC says:

    I would paint my kids furniture. It’s old and I have been wanting to do it forever to brighten up their rooms!

  203. 206

    redo a book case in my hallway thanks

  204. 207

    I would love to redo the stage area at church and would get that project underway!

  205. 208

    Love this set up and your wall is awesome!

  206. 209

    I’ve got plenty of projects that need to be tackled! The first one is for my son’s teacher last year. I promised her I would make her a magnetic chalkboard magnet board for outside her classroom door! I love chalkboard paint but it is messy! :)

  207. 210

    If I won this, it would be hard to decide which project to do. However, at the top of my list currently is bookcases for homeschooling books. Our library is ever growing and right now, they are all separated by genre in boxes on the floor of the living room and hallway.

  208. 211

    ok and besides the comment for the giveaway, I came back to say – I love this project SO much and how FAB it looks with your new chalkboard wall! It’s so fantastic!! I came back to pin it : )

  209. 212

    These are so cute! I would definitely stain something small & try to use the towels to apply or wipe. Easy disposable clean up!

  210. 213
    Heather says:

    I’m pretty sure I want to do all of your DIY projects! But I really want to do this one for my sons room! And since he’s 2 I could always use some bounty ;)

  211. 214

    We’re in the process of buying the home we’ve been renting, so I’d be using the gift card and paper towels for some projects we’d like to do to make this home our very own :) we’ve got some picture frames we’d like to build and paint so we can hang some super cute prints we have. I’m also now super intrigued by your chalkboard wall! My husband will be thrilled to hear that ;)

  212. 215
    Angie Lindley says:

    I’m just about to re-decorate my youngest daughters’ shared room! I bought them new “older girl” bedding and plan to re-paint and decorate! The gift card (and paper towels) would make this project go a long way!!!

  213. 216

    So cute! I LOVE the colors you chose, I want to try this out in my kids room!

    • 217

      Of course the gift card would be helpful in buying materials and crates, and I’m pretty messy when painting so Bounty towels would come in handy!! :)

  214. 218

    We’re moving soon and we’ve sold most of our furniture since we’re downsizing. I need to refurbish our Adirondack chairs from outdoor to indoor seating. I also have a few more upcycling projects, too!

  215. 219
    Leslie Ruth says:

    I have a chair, end table and bedside table that all need to be sanded, primed and painted. Sumertime’s the perfect time to do that, right? :)

  217. 221

    I’m getting ready to do a chalk board wall in our homeschool room :)

  218. 222

  220. 224
    Cecilia Bartram says:

    My husband is in the process of planning and building a science table for my classroom. It will include a grow light. I really feel that there is not enough time for science and so having a center built specifically for it will begreat.

  221. 225
    Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I would love to redo my bathroom by possibly painting the tiles or buying new ones. Our bathroom is so dull and outdated. It really needs it

  222. 226

    These look fabulous! I would work on some snowmen that I’ve been working on painting for Christmas projects.

  223. 227
    Cheri Mosgrove says:

    I have A LOT of painting to do this summer and there is no messier painter than me!

  224. 228
    Rachel M. says:

    So many projects so little time. I might use it to work on our kitchen–we really need a new sink and faucet!

  225. 229

    I think I would copy this cute idea right here!!!

  226. 230

    Absolutely LOVE it!!! So inspiring!!! Thanks for the chance :)

  227. 231

    These are so cute! I might make these myself. I’m going to be painting my kitchen cabinets and think that the Bounty towels will come in handy for cleaning up the mess!

    Elizabeth says:

    I would use Bounty to clean up after dying clothes pins to match my classroom bulletin board.

  232. 236

    We’re in the process of preparing our home to sell, and that includes trim throughout the house, as well as flooring in our second bedroom, paint, and a built-in closet. Our five-year-old daughter is assisting us where she can, so I am confident we’ll require *lots* of Bounty paper towels!

  233. 237
    Allison says:

    Repaint my bedroom!

  234. 238

    Cute idea. We use paper towels for almost every craft project!

  235. 239

  236. 240
    courtney says:

    I would love a gift card. We are painting and decorating our new house!!

  237. 241

  238. 242

    I would do more decoupaging and painting of small objects.

  239. 243

    I would use the gift card to spruce up our outdoors with a pergola!

  240. 244
    Angie H. says:

    Once and for all, finish decorating my kitchen/family room. It comes with a long to do list of painting cabinets and trim and sewing curtains and slip covers. Eek!

  244. 248

    I love love love those crate bookshelves. At the moment all I can think I would use bounty for is to mop up pet puke :) that is the kind of week I am having.

  245. 249
    Allison says:

    Love this!!! I’m going to copy you!

  246. 250

    I use Bounty all the time! My daughter had a sleepover and the girls painted canvases and used the towels for the brushes and blending.

  247. 251

    I would work on our bedroom. My husband and I always do projects elsewhere in the house, but we never get around to our own room!

  248. 252

    I have some crates that need staining too. I never thought of painting part of them with bright colors. I love that!

  249. 253

    What a lovely, colorful and fun area!

  250. 254
    Michelle C says:

    I love the idea of painting the inside of the crates! Looks awesome. My project would be to remove the old peeling wallpaper from my kitchen and paint the walls a nice neutral color. I always make a huge mess when I paint.

  251. 255
    Niki Frew says:

    I would clean/organize my craft room…what a mess!

  255. 259

    I know this is boring, but we are about to build a new fence, and I would definitely ;put the money toward that. The paper towels could be used to wipe up the blood, sweat, and tears that will inevitably be shed before this project is over! :)

    Thanks for the idea!

  268. 272

    I love this! Going to go and check out the THD site and see how much these bad boys are. I have several projects on the list, but would like to tackle a photo wall this summer.

  269. 273

  299. 303

    I’ve got a couple of tables on our porch that I’ve really needed to update and have been putting it off. Bounty would be helpful in staining the tables and the home depot gift card would allow us to do a little more landscaping around the porch!

    I would help my husband build a headboard/bed frame out of old corn crib wood– something we have always talked about doing!

  342. 346
    Bethany Novak says:

  344. 348
    Suzanne Aultman says:

  350. 354
    Melanie says:

  351. 355

  355. 359
    Amanda Baker says:

    I joke with my husband that our home is a never ending project! But we are currently working on remodeling our non working bathroom. Bounty paper towels and a home depot gift card would be wonderful in helping us complete our project!!

  356. 360

    I’d build a new desk, since I can’t find one that fits my requirements!

  357. 361

    We have many projects at our house that we could do with the gift card. I love the bookshelves. Painting the inside for a pop of color is so cute.

  359. 363

I’m also planning on repainting our entire living area and refinishing our kitchen cabinets. I will be using alot of Bounty! Oh and I want to building a dinning room table because I can’t find the perfect one anywear. Wow, I’m tired just thinking about this list!

  361. 365

    I have some bookshelves I need to build and this would be so helpful! I hope to stain them a darker color to match the other furniture in the house!

  362. 366
    Andrea D. says:

    I have so many rooms and pieces of furniture to paint. I wouldn’t even start them without several rolls of Bounty. Thanks for the chance to win this prize.

  363. 367

    My next project is my mom’s old bedroom set

    i would clean my patio furniture

  366. 370

    I will definitely be using some good painting and cleaning supplies to paint our new nursery once we move into our new house in a couple weeks. The gift card would sure be helpful in getting all of the paint and bead board for the room as well! The crates look beautiful. May have to try that for a play room when she gets older.

  367. 371
    Rossetta Hanna says:

    I have a wooden ladder back chair sitting out on my patio that needs to be redone. I would need to sand it and then repaint it. Those Bounty Towels would be right there to help me dab up my mistakes. I am also enchanted with the crate idea. My son is starting his first teaching job in August and I think the crates would make a great masculine statement in his room!

  368. 372
    Courtney says:

    This is the perfect project for our toy area in our rec room. It will add color to otherwise pretty drab wall and be at the perfect level for my 4 year old.

  388. 392
    jessica robertson says:

    I’m always painting something in our house…I change my mind a lot. :) So, I would use Bounty to help clean up the drips from the paint. My next project is repainting the kitchen, breakfast area, living room, and built ins. I’ll need lots of Bounty for that! :)

  389. 393

  390. 394
    Wendy M says:

    I’m about to start a diy wall art project for my living room, so I will definitely be using a lot of Bounty. I’m a messy painter!

  402. 406
    Melissa Hungria says:

    I am so fortunate to have seen these beautiful crates in Pinterest! My project would be toy storage. The downstairs of our house is one great room with the exception of the restroom. So it’s our living space as well as our play space.

  403. 407

    Paints and plants! Maybe painting a collection of pots would help me remember to water the flowers in them!

  404. 408
    Elizabeth says:

    I would love to totally copy your idea! Our playroom/school room has also lost its prettiness to functionality and I would love to get that back!

  405. 409

    I LOVE this project. I think I might add this one as storage in my daycare. :)

  406. 410

    Looking for more (attractive) storage in my sewing room!

    I am in the middle of re-doing a set of wooden lockers. I need some motivation to get them finished!

  409. 414
    Rebekah M. says:

    I would do this project, almost exactly! We move around a lot and live in radically different sizes and layouts of homes. I love the possibility of rearranging or even breaking up the “bookshelf” to fit the situation. We have a lot of books, too, between personal and professional libraries and the homeschool books to come. Thanks for this brilliant idea!

  410. 415

    I have a desk that needs a nice update with stain.

  411. 416

    I would paint my old entertainment center. Always good to have Bounty on hand! Love your crates!

  412. 417

  421. 426
    Erin Stone says:

    I would love to add a tile backsplash to our new house!

  422. 427

    We just moved, so I’d use the Bounty paper towels to clean and the Home Depot giftcard to buy some goodies to organize and decorate.
    I love the crate bookcase project. I have a few pallets that I’ve been wanting to make something with, and so that is on the list too!

  423. 428
    Karoline says:

    Definitely use them for crafts with my son! He loves to play mad scientist with food coloring, baking soda, and vinegar so lots of cleanup needed. I wonder if, once dried, we could use the paper towels for an origami project. And cut up the tubes for more art projects and seed-starting for our garden.

  424. 429

    I NEEEEEED a bookcase like this! what a great idea. I’d definitely use the gift card to build something similar and rehab a couple of antique furniture pieces I have!

  425. 430

    Absolutely love the bookcase! Great colors!

    I would use the paper towels to do paper bag flooring in our basement!

  426. 431

    Pinning your bookshelf- love it!

  427. 432

    This project is great! Loving the painted insides of the crates. How clever! My next Bounty project will be painting our stair banisters. Not a glamorous job, but somebody’s gotta get rid of that peeling brown yuckyness!

  428. 433

    Oh my too many projects. I need to paint a light fixture and dresser.

  429. 434
    Kelly McDonald says:

  431. 437

    Would love to repaint some flower pots for a fresh summer look!

  432. 438

    Paint my red dining room another fresh color. Kinda overwhelming!

  433. 439

    I have a thrifted coffee table that I’ve been meaning to paint! I think it’d be the perfect project for Bounty paper towels!

  434. 440
    Bethany says:

    I would use the Bounty to scrub our baseboards! they need a good scrub down :)

  435. 441

    I would tackle the dining room table that is still sitting in my garage for about 3 months now, not to mention rocking chairs that need cleaning.

  436. 442

    Love this project idea!! What size crates did you get from home depot? I just did a search and several came up. Thanks in advance!

  438. 444

    I totally copied this in my daughter’s room this past week! Thank you for sharing!

  439. 445

    I’m doing the same thing, but bought mine at Michael’s where they are normally $14 but $7 with the 50% off coupon!

  440. 446

    I love the possibility of rearranging or even breaking up the “bookshelf” to fit the situation. We have a lot of books, too, between personal and professional libraries and the homeschool books to come. Thanks for this brilliant idea!
