In a few previous posts (here & here) I’ve looked at how we can all recycle and upcycle everyday items. I always think that there is a fine line between ‘junk and funk’ and some items are past restoring and giving a new lease of life. However, I’ve always loved old wooden crates – you know, the fruit and veg ones that have the company’s name embossed on its side, and you can pick them up pretty cheaply from flea markets and junk shops. I think they can be adapted for the 21st century home really easily and add a twist of heritage to any interior.

I personally LOVE the idea of a crate side table…
