Look! Wine Store Shingles Made From Wooden Crates

We used to place an order to a clerk behind safety glass at this liquor store. Four years later, our Brooklyn neighborhood's been transformed. It's now an upscale wine boutique—complete with a wine crate facade!

We've seen wine crates as book shelves, stools, even pet bowls. But these shingles were something new. They had a warm, rustic touch against all the concrete and glass of nearby buildings.

It's such cool way to reuse a material that's inherent to your business. Plus it instantly informs passerbys what you're all about. (And, we'll admit, coaxes them into purchasing a bottle of Malbec.)
