Five ways to re-purpose beer crates

There are so many ways to reuse a beer crate! And you can pick these bad boys up usually for free or for around $3-5 from liquor stores. Whether you are looking for ways to store your stuff, looking for a new table, chair or a shelf, there are so many things you can repurpose an old crate for (and don't get us started on pallets!). If you’re looking for a little inspiration or a new DIY project, here are 5 ways we have reused beer crates at our place.

1. Store a pot plant and towels for the bathroom

3. Use as a bedside table, can put ya cuppa on the top and ya book inside
