Crate Shelving Units And Racks

A shelving unit or a rack is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see a crate. You can simply attach a crate to the wall to use it as a shelf, or attach a couple of crates to each other and place them on casters for a mobile unit, or build a whole large shelving unit of crates – horizontally, vertically or both to use it as a storage unit and space divider. You may stain, paint or just paint the edges of the crates to make them look cooler and to match your interior.

Crate Tables And Desks

Building a desk or table of crates is pretty easy: use them as a base or legs, and they will also feature much storage space – it’s usually open space but you may add doors, too. You can also make a coffee table of crates – attach several pieces to each other, stain or paint it and add casters for more comfortable using. If you need a smaller piece – a side or end table – take a single crate and place it on hairpin legs and voila!
