Wooden Crate Ideas to Build for Storage and Organization

Ever think about experimenting with a few power tools? 

These easy DIY projects might be just the project to try.

On a recent trip to the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY, I found some old blueberry crates and I wanted to build one for myself... so I did.

Another easy build was this wooden tulip tray made with paint sticks.

These wooden crates were a thrift store find. At $2.00 each they were worth a shot at building shelving

I'm glad I did!

After I built this crate from reclaimed wood I added aluminum corners from this unusual thrift store find.

Wooden shims and chicken wire came together to replicate an antique French Vegetable Crate.

Broken crates can also be repurposed like I did with several old wine crates, which are now these rustic stenciled signs

I hope you enjoyed my repurposed crate projects.
