We've had our eye on Creative and Repurposed Kitchen Storage Ideas this month, so when we came across Poetic Home's roundup of wooden fruit, tea, and shipping crates used in the kitchen, we just had to share.

Wooden crates can be warm, rustic, and charming. We love how they can be used to display anything from spices to dishware ... or even be used as a table! Check out six inspiring ideas at the Poetic Home blog:

Remodeling Your Kitchen? Repurpose Crates!

If you're looking for wooden crates to use in your own kitchen, we suggest asking your local wine or liquor store or perusing flea markets and vintage shops. As Poetic Home points out, "With a little bit of wood stain and a rag, you can transform nearly any wooden pallet or crate to have vintage-esq patina and glow." Be sure to check out our roundup of Eco-Friendly Stains, too!
