DIY Wine Crate Storage Projects

We do a lot of storage and organizing project round ups on DYSS, because those of us with small spaces need options! I love a taste of vintage, repurposing and a little industrial modern all put together, and thats’ what caught our attention with using wine crates to make storage units for your home.  Can’t figure out how to get your hands on these wonders of home decor? Apartment Therapy has a post on how to find wine crates… good ideas! So we’re getting right to it, DIY wine crate storage projects!




Our featured photo, above, we found on Flickr… this would be an amazing storage unit for any room. If you try to DIY something like this, be sure to secure the crates to each other, and then to anchors in the wall.

From Good Looking Things, this wine crate storage unit was made in less than 30 minutes with nothing but a drill and some hardware. Great photos in her tutorial. Love the industrial look!



From Smile and Wave, this bathroom cabinet was made from old wine crates, and is pretty darn charming! Check out her how-to.



Another bathroom storage idea from Saavy Insider.



Poppytalk has this quick tutorial for these modular shelving systems created from boxes (I vote wine crates! Isn’t that why we’re here?) and foldback binder clips!



Got collections? Easy wine crate idea from Popsugar.



Not only are these vintage crate carts cool just for the project itself, they also show you how to make the crates themselves! From Ana-White, complete plans.



This pallet coffee table with wine crates is an Etsy find, and worth every penny if you don’t want to make something like this….can you see where I’m going with this, DIY’ers?



Organize a mud room with colorfully painted crates. Design by The Verden.



From DIY Village, these rolling storage up cycled wine crates would be great for everything from magazines and remotes, to kids toys! Great step by step instructions with photos.



Finally, from Oh Glory Vintage, imagine using a wine crate…wait for it… as a wine rack! This up cycled wine rack project originally used an old dairy crate, but the inspiration is good, and I like my twist on it! What about using an old wire wine rack from Goodwill inside the crate?

    It’s amazing how many DIY projects can be done with wine crates. My favorites here are the baby room storage shelving and the wine crates held together with clips. That would make for a great home library!

    I love the vintage charm of decorating with wine crates. They are versatile and useful for storage. My favorite photos here are the country store (First picture) and baby toy rack.
