Trash to Treasure: Recycling Old Crates
I’ve blogged about it numerous times and I have to do it again! This is yet another post on reusing, recycling, and repurposing. Today I decided to take on recycling old crates!
Who knew shipping crates could look this good? This was a post on Design Squish that I had to share. Check out these amazing ideas. Love these shelves, bike basket, and crate furniture from Design Squish; Shipping Crate Bike Basket from Globe Revolution; and Crate Shelves from Baileys Home and Garden!
The shelving system has to be my favorite. It has a vintage modern look that I love. Also, if you notice the last crate shelf picture, there is a crate on the floor with wheels added. What a great idea for additional storage for toys, or a bassinet for baby dolls!
How cool are the colorful plastic chair, side and end table? Depending on the size and style, you can purchase wooden legs from Home Depot for about five to twenty dollars a piece. There are several choices from traditional to modern styles.
I had mentioned the other day that you can get wine crates for free or for less than five dollars each from most spirit wine and liquor specialty stores. Just ask! Call to find out when they receive shipments and ask to take them off their hands. Otherwise, they will likely get broken down and thrown out.
