Homemade Wood Crates

Everywhere I go I seem to see wood crates… in garden centres, fashion shops, food shops, independent stores, anywhere really and they’re mostly used for displays rather than actual storage.

I can see why they’re everywhere because they very nice! Rustic, vintage, solid, and very flexible in use… so I thought I’d make my own!

My own DIY crate

So here’s how it turned out and I have to say I’m pretty impressed with how it turned out.

I had some old pallet wood lying around which had been weathered and so materials didn’t cost anything. I finished it off with a spray painted logo, and will see about adding different logos to further crates I made such as fruit, etc.

I’ll definitely be making more and not only do they look nice but they’re actually very useful for storage too! Who Knew?!
