Wine crate shelves

Just before Christmas I got my hands on some wooden wine crates. They are brand new so the wood doesn’t have a nice aged patina, but I knew right away that I could turn them into a storage unit.  

I have an empty space (God forbid... right... :) in a corner behind the door that I have wanted to make into something useful for a long time and these crates were perfect. 

I played around a little before settling with the layout you see in the pictures.I didn’t want to paint the crates because I have a feeling that this corner won’t be their final resting place.

But because the wood was so new it needed“something” so I cut some scrapping paper to size and covered the back with that.

I didn’t have to buy anything to complete this project so I’m very happy to have new display shelves for free J
