Crate Garden Organizer

Sean surprised me this weekend with a treasure….crates!  He literally came home with a truck bed filled with six crates.  I was in heaven!  I think it is his way to say I totally support you and what you are doing.  I think it’s a new “love language.”  How awesome is that?!  The best part is that just two weeks ago he came home with a bouquet of peacock feathers that he saved from the trash (ok, sounds maybe a tad gross, but he was at a house that had peacocks for pets.  The feathers were gorgeous, super tall, and in perfect condition).  I love that my husband is turning into a Zester!!

Check out my first crate project: mission get the hose off the ground of my patio!

Just wait for some color!

Super cute, right?  Now to install it….wood screws please.

Firstly, the hose was my biggest issue, so I grabbed an over-the-door hanger. Nice, now for some hooks.

I love having everything in one place….and who can resist a crazy cute crate for organizing life?!

First patio project done!  Thanks for checking in on what we have been Zestin’!
