    My favorite possessions when I was about 7 were 6 or 7 peach crates that I would use to build forts, play store, use as shelves, I loved those!

    Oh Meg those are awesome. I saw some really cool shelves from crates on Pinterest the other day. I can’t remember if I pinned them but these remind me of those. I can’t wait to see you use them.

  20. […] Remember these crates I found in the garbage?  I cleaned them up and we slapped some wheels on the good ones this past weekend. Et volia! Toy boxes with wheels. Not my idea and not even the first time I've done it, but it is still awesome. Blocks are heavy and a pain to drag out, but no longer! All thanks to the almighty wheel. […]
