Browsing for decor inspiration I came upon this new way to use wine crates. For years I have collected wine corks to fill decorative vases in my home and love decor that incorporates a re used wine bottle. Reminds me that I am in French or Italian wine country.
Line the crate with decorative paper and adhere to the wall. Something a bit more unique then stacking the crates or a plain bookshelf. More wooden create ideas here.
If you haven't discovered Etsy, it is the best place to find unique gifts. A wine bottled melted down to a cheese plate unifies the two compliments together. Purchased.
Another amazing Etsy store, Keep Calm shop has a poster for everything. Seriously, everything.
