Looks great!
I would say the crates are not the problem.
It's those mannequins! They got the best seats in the house.

Here's a song just made for your spot.

if they ever hired me as a JC Skipper...I would defy tradition and only do the original 50's era narration, sans jokes!

I am thinking of putting a large wardrobe crate in my master bedroom to store my sewing table and stuff in. I found a place that offers crates (not sure of the prices) http://www.caseworkscrating.com/crateFurniture.htm I don't need a floor in it as I would want to place my rolling tables inside and move them out when needed. My bedroom is done in an ancient Egyptian theme, so could do some stenciling on the outside to make it look like a true shipping crate.

I was wondering where you get your crates? Is there some way to get them for free somewhere?

VRN, you can usually find ammunition and artillery crates at Army/Navy surplus stores.

I usually find mine at local gun shows, and such, most surplus stores don't carry ammo boxes or crates any more, mostly just metal ammo cans, also try Craigslist key words like box. crate ammo box packing boxes wood box I also find em at flea markets and swap meets too

Hey all, well my little condo and the Jungle Cruise Lounge sold, in just 3 days too, so Im busy everyweekend looking for a new home of the lounge! luckily, every home Ive looked at have bigger yards than my little patio! found a few places with O'Hannas on them, connected 3 car garages, sun rooms, and more! so many choices, of course the GF is getting frustrated because the first thing I do is starting looking for a tiki space, not how big is the bedroom, or how many bathrooms! lol its fun and frustrating at the same time, but I think I may have narrowed it down to a few fixer uppers with some good 1960s-70s vibe and a real Brady Bunch feel to them...........stay tuned, lol
and thanks all for the kind words and support too

LOL I love it...you are looking for the Tiki space...hey we all have our priorities. I always thought I wanted a home that had clearly defined spaces, so when I was looking at models I had one picked out like that. My best friend told me that I needed to go back to the community and look at the model I ended up buying as it was very open...I sure was glad I did that. At the time I had my 50's bamboo bar and the only place it fit was in the living room...ended up being a good floor plan all around. Planning is paramount.

You are smart to think about how your fabulous collection will work in a new space. Best of luck in your adventure.
