Most of our customers buy wine crates for 1 of 4 reasons:
- Wine cellar or wine room storage/shelving
- To enhance the look of their hospitality business (Hotel, wine store, restaurant etc.)
- Home decoration
- DIY projects like the ones shown below
Wine crate projects can be anywhere from easy to advanced. For example, to make floating shelves is easy. All you need is a hammer, some nails and a level. Simply nail the crates to the wall and make sure they're straight like your hanging a painting.
Another example of an easy DIY with wine crates are table centerpieces. All you have to do is place the fruits, flowers or succulents inside the wine crates and arrange them nicely.
One of the most fun projects is the shadowboxes. This is because there's so many wallpaper styles to choose from, and it allows you to mix and match different contrasts to find the right one for you.
Some of the more advanced projects include the wine crate tables and shelving. If your handy it's no problem, but if your not it's best to seek help from a woodworker or carpenter.
The advanced project I like most is the bedside table. Although I do enjoy the rustic charm wine crates give to a home accessory, something about the sleek look of that piece makes me want to own it.
Somewhere between easy and advanced is the bookcase. You'd need alot of wine crates to make that happen, but they're all held together by binder clips which looks simple to do. I haven't tried the project myself but supposedly it works well. If you decide to do it please let me know how it went.
What's great about wine crates is that no matter the difficulty level, the project is going to enhance your decor. It doesn't have to be perfect either because the vintage beauty is built right in!
