design idea - crate photo - house of earnest

This weekend during my trip to Pistacia Vera in search of super photogenic food, I saw a little crated photo they had hanging and just loved it.  I loved how in the midst of a very modern, sleek shop, this hit of nostagia was highlighted.

I had a crate at home and wanted to see if I could pull off a similar look.  Although I do love how their black frame was set off against the light, aged wood, I went with a chrome frame in mine with a little burlap matting (frame from West Elm here).

Although mine does have a different look, due mostly to its surroundings, I still like what it lends to my living room.

It wasn’t too hard to do – just hammer your photo frame nails to the crate prior to hanging the crate, then assemble it all together.  I’m preparing to start another mini gallery cluster on this wall and thought this crate and photo would be a nice anchor – or starting point – for some other homemade art I have coming down the pipe.

It’s just a really simple way that any idea can go from mere inspiration to adoption stat!

Have an INSPIRED Tuesday!

  • Love it! Where did you get the crate?

  • I love this idea! We have two of those crates hanging on our wall but right now they’re too cluttered for my liking. May have to try this out!

  • I love these! I have been lusting after a wooden crate collection for a while now. I really need to get to scouring the antique stores and flea markets.

  • Such an unique idea! Love the modern meets rustic look and it really works to draw attention to what might otherwise be just another photo on the wall.

  • Love this idea. Making the crate out of a wooden pallet would be a great diy as well, good find!

  • What a great, simple idea! Nicely done.

  • Great frame!! I have a crate too, collecting dust actually…this would be perfect in my office =)
