8 Stunning Ways to Decorate Using Old Wooden Crates!

Come the season of mangoes, most of us end up with empty wooden crates lying around the house. And all we ever think of doing with them is selling them to the local scrap dealer for peanuts. What is little known is the huge number of aesthetic uses that these humble-looking design elements can be put to! Can’t believe it? See it for yourself!

1.  A coat of paint and some wheels and you can turn your piece of junk into a chic side table that can be moved around when needed!


2. Turn a wooden crate into a nice storage basket to keep those extra throw pillows from cluttering your living room. Give it a coat of paint if you feel it needs a little something to work well with your décor.


3.  Or repurpose a few into a bathroom storage unit (with wheels) to store all your bath-time essentials. Seek help from your carpenter if you aren’t handy with a hammer and nails.
