Antique Tea Crates

Antique Tea Crates

Your rustic wedding will get an authentic and gorgeous touch with the Antique Tea Crates. It's hard to believe that this woodcraft started life at a craft store. Some woodwork and painting with tea gives these crates a rich vintage aesthetic that you and your guests will love. The crates make wonderful do-it-yourself table decorations for the wedding reception, but there's really no limit to the uses you'll find for these beautiful crafts, both at the wedding and in the home.

I love the look of these antique tea crates, they are very different and unique looking. I would love to do a trial one to see how easy they are or not, has anyone tried them out? I also love that they could be reused again after the wedding to hold stuff in )

I just love the warm, rustic, country feel that these crates bring to the centerpiece on the table. I have seen similar looks in wedding magazines and wondered how I could recreate the look myself. Now I have the perfect tutorial to give it a try! I think that some wonderful large hydrangeas or peonies would look amazing inside these crates. This is a stunning DIY piece. I can't wait to try it.

Love this look! It lets the table look both rustic and sophisticated. Is black tea the only stain that looks good on this? I would be interested to see other types that have different hues as well. Thanks so much for the article!
