Interiors…Vintage Wine Crates

 I’ve been watching waaay too much HGTV lately.

And, of course, now I want to completely re-do our house.  I think we have a bit of a problem with storage, or lack thereof, and I’ve been looking into using vintage crates (wine!) as an attractive alternative to the canvas boxes I bought forever ago at Ikea.   The Boyfriend thinks I have a bit of a problem with owning too much “junk” (his term, not mine).

crate storage

I dont understand why, last week, when we bought a case of wine it was handed over in a cardboard box.  Where was my vintage crate?

Apparently you have to buy them (sans wine unfortunately).  I came across this website that sells gorgeous 6 and 12 bottle vintage wine/beer crates and they’re only around 10-15 euros each.

I’m not really a mathwiz but I think that’s around $20.

Vintage French Wine Crates

I came across this company, The Wonderful Wood Company, based out of London who sells these amazing vintage wine crates.  I am thinking stacked for a side table of a piece of thick glass on top for a coffee table.

What I really need them for is storage.  God knows I need that…
