Despite including wine crates in our wedding decor, and upcycling a palette for a table in our lounge, I’m very late to the apple crate party.Image source:: House to Home
A few weeks ago I decided to clear up the clutter that had accumulated behind the door in our Dining Room. I ordered three crates from eBay for just over £10 each (when you take into account the delivery charge) to make a shelving unit.
On the very top I’ve used another crate I had hanging about and filled it with votives that were cluttering up the windowsill. The top crate has tea lights, candles and raffia stuffed into a few Ikea jars. The middle shelf is home to a H&M Jute Storage Basket filled to the brim with napkins and placemats. Finally on the bottom, I’ve found a place to store my cutlery.
Can’t believe it’s taken me so long to jump on the crate bandwagon and to clear up the chaos behind the door! How are you using crates and palettes in your home?
