DIY Recycled Wine Crate Shelves

Have I mentioned recently how much I love Pinterest? Yeah, I know…I’m obsessed. Anyway, thanks to my obsession, I discovered this awesome DIY recycled wine crate shelves over on Babble. When I eventually re-design my home office, I’m going to need to make some of there beauties. Love <3…

    I love the idea! I really like the colors you used and was wondering what is the name of the paint on your wall?

    what are the crates made of? wood or are they the cardboard boxes that a case of wine ships in? would the cardboard ones be strong enough? thanks!

      I believe they’re made of wood. I once purchased a wooden wine box on eBay which I think would be perfect for these. I bet you could use any open wooden box like this :)

      I’m actually not sure since I’m not the one who initially made them. However, I wonder if you could simply drill some photo frame hooks into the back?

    I love the wine crate pictures too! Your pallette is quite lively while being neutral enough to disply them even at a home staging. Thank you for sharing!

    What did you use for the back of the boxes? Wallpaper?

    [...] After that part is done too, all you need to do is mount the crates on the wall. Since different crates have different shapes and different dimensions, you can use multiples crates to cover part of a wall. Paint them in different colors and hang them on different heights and you’ll get an interesting composition. It’s a very simple way of getting some additional storage space for your home. It’s also a fun project as well.{found on theplungeproject}. [...]
