I just stumbled upon this beautiful photo by IKEA‘s DIY blog. Baskets turned into shelves; what a great idea! So, I thought I might share more DIY shelving ideas using old worn-out crates and such.
Here is a nice arrangement of crates from my Pinterest collection. I love the bohemian way these shelves fall together.
This one (below) is a basic crate shelving unit. With a bit of DIY skill, this can be pulled off easily.
A simple shelving system in the kitchen can be made using wooden planks from left-over pallets and crates. I did read, however, that pallets are not quite advisable for indoor use, seeing the amount of chemicals used in treating them to withstand humidity and all kinds of harsh shipping conditions.
