I keep seeing old crates at the flea and have been thinking they're cute but unusable- then I found these ideas! I would love to do all of these but think that using a crate as a planter will fit perfectly into my life. Crates really can be used for so many things, such as shelving units, planters, containers, side tables and the list goes on! Pick one up yourself and try it out! It's a really cheap, fun and unique way to add character to any home!
