I’m always looking for clever ways to display my retro finds so when I found an old wooden drinks crate I decided to make it into a quirky display cabinet for in my kitchen. It’s a simple idea but looks great and is very easy to make.
You will need
Old Wooden drinks crate (I got mine at the local tip)
Print outs of vintage recipes
Fast drying varnish
Medium sized paint brush
Jar with screw lid
Clean your crate and give it a layer of varnish all over. Line the inside with your printouts of old recipes and varnish over a few times so they are really shiny.
Once this is all dried drill a couple of holes into the lid of your jar and screw it into the bottom of the crate.
Screw in some cup hooks alongside the jar lid.
Drill two holes in the back of your crate. This will be how you will fix it to the wall.
Use your spirit measure to see where your shelf should hang and mark with a pencil.
Screw your storage shelf into the wall.
Fill with your favourite books and collectables. You can put tea bags in your jar alongside your best mugs. Who said storage had to be dull?
