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. Because of this, I have come up with several ways to repurpose wood crates.
Ideas For How To Repurpose Wood Crates
My husband did find a super 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. It seemed like a good place to store some of my old books and other vintage trinkets.
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.
To see the before pictures, check out my post DIY Tray Table.
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.
This is perfect for storing smaller jars to use as a spice rack as seen at Nine Red.
This last repurpose is my favorite and comes with full step by step instructions for making. Check out the tutorial at Remodelando la Caso for this DIY Wooden Crate Table that uses old wine crates and industrial metal as the main components.
