Ways To Repurpose Wood Crates

If you like to shop antique malls and flea markets, you probably have run into some wood crates for sale. These always draw my eye right away as something that I could repurpose into a fun decorative and useful item.

My husband did find a real old crate for me in the middle of the woods once! I cleaned it up real good and used it in my office as a bookcase shelf.

You can see more details for this crate and other junk items at my post Decorating With Junk.

I also had another wood crate along with an old vintage ladder that I combined to make a fun side table for my dining room.

Here are some other fun ideas that I found to repurpose wood crates.

This rustic display cabinet, seen at Country Living, was made up entirely of old shipping crates. Such a fun way to display those mason jars!

Another fun way to display jars is with a soda crate.
