DIYish Christmas Tree Crate


Heyyy!  I know what you are thinking, how does she already have presents wrapped under the tree?! Just call me an overachiever this year!  ;)  I don't know how it is possible but I am actually done with our Christmas shopping.  That has to be some kind of record.  For the past couple years I have used this galvanized bucket instead of a tree skirt.  


I loved how this looked but it was not the most stable base.  Our tree base was too big for the bucket and I had use 2 x 4s so it would not fall over.  With our little Mack getting into everything this year I knew that an unstable tree could be a disaster...  Then I saw {this} image on pinterest:


 I want that to be my living room...those baseboards {heart eyes emoji} and that couch {Tall Tan Man would murder me for that one}!  At first I planned on building the crate but then I found this one at JoAnn's.  It is a little bit bigger than the normal crates you see which was perfect for the tree.


The crate is normally $30 but I had a 50% off coupon {plus 25% off my total purchase, I really love black Friday}.  I stained the crate with a 50/50 mixture of Minawax Jacobean and Weathered Oak.  I bought a faux fur blanket at Homegoods to cover the bricks in the crate that are weighing down the tree. 



I love how the crate turned out! 


I hope everyone is having a great week!  We are taking Mack to Santa soon and I can't wait to share the photos!
