Antique Pepsi Crate turned Succulent Plant Holder

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.

In a recent thrift shop adventure I came across this adorable Pepsi crate. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a project for it. I think I finally found it.
I found a few antique books too!

I've also been looking for a project to incorporate a few succulent plants so I thought I'd merge the two together. Unfortunately the plants are too short for the crates. I cut a few boards down to elevate the plants.
I grabbed a few scrap pieces of wood and cut them down to size.
I was ready to go from there!
A quick, easy project.
Now I just need to get a few more plants.

Thanks for stopping by!
