10 Design Ideas for Wood Crates

By Oreeko

DIY‘s on how to recycle and refurbish wooden crates is so common and easy to find in our days. While I was scrolling through my Pinterest boards I realized that I had gathered a huge amount of cool pins on how to spice up wooden crates. I always fancied the idea of having wooden crates as part of a rustic, farm-like home decor. Here is a list of the best 10 examples I have found so far.

1. This dreamy vintage wooden crate stole my heart immediately. Wouldn’t you love to refurbish a vintage crate and use it as  a coffee table tray? {via Dreamy Whites}

2. Different sizes and colors of wooden crates. Some are positioned vertically other horizontally to give some movement to the wall. I love the contrast with the dark blue wall and grungy furniture {via Home Polish}

3. Using wooden crates as jewelry exhibition displays is brilliant. By applying hooks, it’s perfect for hanging necklaces {via coco+kelley}

4.  I love how they used these crates as an overall decor: lights, seats and a vase. They combined all these elements so well without making it overwhelming. {via The Crate People} – they sell refurbished wooden crates.

5. Another great example by {The Crate People}. They personalized the crates and used them as vases. They specialize in repurposing vintage crates to create furniture and displays.

6. These vintage apple crates have been turned into a shoe shelving system. {via HousetoHome}

7.  Adding a wall made entirely of wooden crates is fantagaloric. Recreating a farmers market feel in the home is perfect. Maybe not all vegetables can be displayed like this, but why not fruits, flowers, and a delicious organic French baguette. {via Green Wedding Shoes}

8. Animal lovers I didn’t forget about you! Upcycled shabby chic country pet bed {via Salvage Shack}

9. I’ve never seen wooden crates used as kitchen shelves, and I must admit … it’s genius! Everything about this outdoor kitchen as the perfect home decor elements to make you feel like you are in a French farmhouse {via Hanna}

10. By adding some wheels, the wooden crate became a perfect magazine and blanket storage space and by turning it upright, it becomes a perfect side table {via deas og mia}
