DIY Wine Crate Shelf
by Jessica of Mom 4 Real
Hey there Remodelaholic peeps! I’m Jessica from Mom 4 Real, and I am so happy to be over here sharing one of my thrifty projects. I live in a smallish house full of thrifty finds, and absolutely love finding old things and turning them into new fabulous things. Some thrifty makeovers I have done recently in my home are my Breakfast Nook Makeover With Thrifted Finds and our Thrifty Blue and White Cottage Bedroom Makeover . I just love the character that comes with using old things!
We love our cottage style home, but storage can be tricky, so maximizing our space is a must. On a recent trip to Costco, my husband and I stopped in their wine shop to pick up a bottle of vino. I noticed behind the counter, they had a few wooden wine crates, so I asked if they were selling them. The lady told me that they give them away, and I was welcome to have them if I wanted…whoop…score! I brought them home and sat them in my garage in anticipation of doing something with them. The next weekend, my father in law brought me some tobacco sticks for a different project that I wanted to make, and I knew immediately that I wanted to make a rustic shelf using the crates and tobacco sticks! So, out of these two free finds, my wine crate shelves were born. Here is how I put them together…
Next, I layed them on the floor and separated them so I could see how far apart I wanted them to be. I took one of the tobacco sticks and layed it across them to see how long each of them needed to be.
Now I have the perfect spot to store my cookbooks and a few dishes that were being stored in my garage. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for some more of these crates for sure…they are perfect for storage!
I have so enjoyed hanging with you today! I’d love for you to stop over and visit me some time!
