[ wine crates for...? ]

WOODEN WINE CRATES can be used for so many things - I've used them to transport and display handbags at a craft fair and some of you may remember the special ones that I snagged from U2's The Edge that I store magazines in. I never would have thought to use them for anything other than as containers to hold things but apparently they can serve a much better purpose - floors! What have you used wine crates for?

The floor is FANTASTIC! I've used old wine boxes and pop boxes for storing magazines. I have to tell you, my husband and brother are designers and they used old Guinness barrels for flooring in a restaurant.

WOW! I love that second floor. The wine crates add so much texture and character. Also, you wouldn't have to worry about wine spills on that floor :)

I saw something like this in ReadyMade magazine where a couple had made their entire kitchen out of wine crates. I want something like that but couldn't afford to drink all that wine.
