Create a Display with Wine Crates
Do you order wine in bulk or work at a restaurant or bar? Well, you probably can get your hands on a few wine crates. These crates can be easily re-purposed or used as is to create a rustic looking storage display.
Wine crates are large enough to store magazines, books and other items on the floor, but you can give your wall a different look by hanging them on the wall. You can hang some vertically and horizontally or keep it consistent. Its really up to you, and if you so dare, you can even decorate an entire wall with them.
This is a cost-effective way to create shelving units, and the crates look like antiques or you can refresh them with paint.
