Chicken Crate Shelves

Chicken Crate Shelves

We hung some old chicken crates above the door to our porch for use as shelves. They were in pretty rough shape, so we reinforced the corners with old wire and added some shelves with weathered boards, to keep the primitive look. We want to use them to display some of our antiques, but are still playing with the arrangement.
