Reusing things is a great concept. However, it tends to get apparently hampered by the shortage of creative ideas. You just can't put anything in the middle of your house just because you want to reuse it. You have to transform it creatively into something which would make it suitable to be a part of your house without looking odd.
Due to this lack of creative ideas pushed further by lack of interest, we end up throwing things away only to buy them at a store for a price. Take wooden crates, for instance, almost all of us come across these, and all we do is throw them out.
There is so much that can be made out of these ubiquitous platforms, and you don't have to be too creative to do so, all you need is a bit of smart thinking. Take a look at some incredible ideas to put your wooden crates to use.
A pet house
Yes, you read it right. You can make a comfortable house for your pet with this universal item. All you need is a bit of cleaning and painting if you want to color it. You can drop the color part if you find it too much. Fix together a couple of wooden crates and your pet house is all set to amaze your pet.
A coffee table
Who would have thought that such a common thing can add grace to your sophisticated living area? Well, it truly can do so. Nail together four wooden crates to form a square or rectangular table keeping the space in the middle open. This open space can be used to display a small flower pot or a bowl containing pebbles or stones. Polish the joined wooden crates for an earthy look and put them in the middle of your living area. Wouldn't it look wonderful?
How about a bookcase? Well, these wooden crates are primarily used for storage purposes. You too can use them for the same. Clean and polish some wooden crates and stack them one on top of the other. Your bookcase is ready to hold your precious assemblage. You will have fun displaying your books in your unique bookcase.
