DIY Vintage Crate Shelving Unit

Stacked vintage timber crates can make a functional and decorative storage unit, but they are very hard to come by. And if you happen to find some, you’ll also find that they’re very expensive. By building your own vintage crates, you’ll be able to cut down the cost, but still retain its vintage appearance.

Once you’re done building the individual crates, stack them together to create a single shelving unit. For ease in mobility, attach some caster wheels. Select from different finishes to achieve the vintage look.
