Creative Uses for a Vintage Wine Crate

A few weeks ago, I scored this great vintage wine crate from HomeGoods – LOVE that place! I like to repurpose vintage items (or in this case something that was just made to look old) in my home.  It reminds me of a simpler time, when life wasn’t always filled with so many modern things that seem to take up so much of our precious time.

I then found some “vintage” looking mason jars at Orchard Supply Hardware, that just happened to fit perfectly in the wine slots of the crate.

I knew I really liked the crate and the jars together, but I wasn’t sure right away what to do with it. OK, I still don’t know exactly where I’m going to put it, but I thought of a few ideas for how to use it.  Maybe you can help me decide?

I could fill it with craft supplies…

I could use it as an herb or flower container garden, with a different plant in each jar…

Or, I could put a towel in each slot and use it as bathroom decor…

So, what other ideas do you have?  Any thoughts on how you might use a vintage wine crate in your home decor?
