50+ Projects to Make From Old Crates


50+ Ways to #Repurpose #Upcycle Old Crates @savedbyloves


This week’s 50+ brings you inspiration for putting old wooden crates to use.  It reminds me a lot of the 50+ wood pallet round-up, which isn’t surprising.  The major difference I see between the pallets and crates is that vintage crates can be pretty expensive, at least the ones I have seen.  Wood pallets, on the other hand, are abundant and usually free in these parts.  Lots of unique shelving and storage projects are included, along with some seriously outside of the box ideas.

Here are some of my favorites…

Much like the pallet round-up, Donna from Funky Junk Interiors dominates the vintage crate projects.  If you know Donna, you know that these wooden crate stairs scream Funky Junk Interiors.  While we are on the topic of FJI, lets get straight to my next favorite project from this list…

It is a super cool wooden crate toilet paper storage unit.  The rusty license plate tops it off perfectly.  What I wouldn’t give to let that girl loose in my house for a week of revamping, funky junk style.

Why not dispose of your empty wine crates by turning them into eco-chic, one of a kind flooring?  I would love this in my home!

This upcycled wooden crate coffee table on Etsy is making me drool.  At $200, I think it is time to hack, but if you can afford it, go for it.
