In my previous post, I briefly described a recent visit to a local antique store called Collectors’ Corner. My daughter had made a special request for me to make her a spice rack for her college apartment. So I got to thinking — antique crate. Only, I thought that I was going to have to run it through the table saw, reconstruct it somehow, and touch it up with fresh paint.
But I came across a beautiful Coca Cola Crate (pictured below). I tried to talk them down on the $40 price. I know — I probably paid too much, but this crate was in excellent condition. When I brought it home, my daughter and I decided not to alter it. All I did was add some picture hanging hardware to the back, and I had me a coca cola crate spice rack. I think the picture above says it all.
Please share your comments about the coca cola crate spice rack in the fields below. What other ways could a coca cola crate be repurposed?
