Look! Apple Crate Shelves

Look! Apple Crate Shelves

One of our flea market fantasies is coming across a large lot of old apple crates, like those seen here. Their perfect patina would be just the right rustic touch to add to a home, be it just a couple boxes or a whole wall of shelves...

Really, the DIY options for apple crates are endless, but finding good ones can be harder than you might think. If we did come across a few, we might do something like this for storage and display (um, but minus the row of old shoes seen in the first picture). For more apple crate inspiration, click here, and here's a source for purchasing them new.
