Three Crates Doth a Shelf Make

My hubster has skills.  Seriously.  I can say "Honey, can you do..." and he does!  Love that man!



So yesterday I was looking a three wooden crates that he brought home from a garage sale.  They're all wood and have great typography on the sides.
























So he started off by screwing the three crates together.


















Then he put swivel wheels on the bottom.  He got this set of 4 for $5 at Harbor Freight.



Voila!  I've got a sturdy, functional, portable bookcase!




Yep, mad skills!

Cute bookshelf! ( And I like the fact that your husband brought home those fabulous crates in the first place.)

Well, first of all...HE BROUGHT THEM HOME FROM A GARAGE SALE.
You can just stop there-- because, seriously?!!
You must be proud.
then he just puts this bad boy together, just like that. Skillz for sure.

I like it! The little peep toed wheels are an awesome accessory too.

Oh, and can your hubby do a workshop someday for the rest of our hubbies? Something like.... "How to keep the love alive when you're married to a DIY blogger...." haha
