Crate Furniture Ideas

If you like rustic and industrial design, box and pallet furniture is just the thing for your home. You can make such parts yourself and upcycle some abandoned boxes or pallets, which means going green. Do you want some inspiration? Here are some cool ideas from Pinterest!

Crate shelves and racks

A shelf or rack is the first thing that comes to mind when you see a box. You can simply attach a box to the wall to use as a shelf, or clip a couple of boxes together and put them on casters for a mobile unit, or build a whole large shelf of boxes – horizontally, vertically, or both around it as a storage unit and room dividers to use. You can color, paint, or just paint the edges of the boxes to make them look cooler and match your interior.

Crate tables and desks

Building a desk or crate table is pretty simple: use them as a base or legs, and they offer lots of storage space too – usually it’s open space, but you can add doors too. You can also make a coffee table out of boxes – attach multiple pieces together, stain or paint them, and add rollers for ease of use. If you need a smaller piece – a side table or end table – take a single box and put it on top of hairpin legs and voila!

Other chest furniture

Crates can be used to make an ottoman, footstool, bedside table, drawers, bed, and many other pieces of furniture – each piece offers storage space, which is amazing. Take a look at the ideas and be inspired! If you’d like some DIY projects to realize some of these items, click here.
