This individual 'medium' crate is painted white in a 'white-wash' style finish so some of the natural wood shows through. The bottom is a plain wood color plywood. Each crate is handmade & unique, and the natural features have been left intact. The crate can be used for: toiletries/cosmetics, kitchen items (oils, towels, fruit, cooking utensils), plants & seeds, laundry items, craft or office supplies, shadow box displays & more. It can be hung on the wall, but only if you place lightweight items inside (such as small plants, small picture frames or knickknacks). Please note that these are sturdy but not designed to hold very heavy objects.nnAll of our packaging and much of our assembly is done by a job training program for special needs adults. Our products are naturally organic, entirely made of sustainably forested wood, much of it reclaimed or that would otherwise go to scrap. We are a small, family-owned business, making high quality, organic wood products for over 40 years.
