4 Fun Ways to Repurpose Your Wooden Wine Boxes

4 Fun Ways to Repurpose Your Wooden Wine Boxes

You are a wine connoisseur, which means you have likely accumulated a lot of wooden wine boxes. Or, perhaps you own a small café, which also means you have accrued many boxes. Rather than tossing them into the recycling bin, you should consider repurposing them.

One of the benefits of wooden wine boxes is that they are durable and can withstand a lot of weight. Indeed, as soon as you’re finished with the wine bottles, you can take advantage of these wooden wine boxes and use them for a wide array of things, whether it’s your garden or storage.

Simply put: all you need to do is employ some creativity. You’ll save money and be green.

Here are five ways to repurpose your wooden wine boxes:

1.  A Rolling Toy Box for Children

Instead of buying a brand new carriage for your child to play with, why not use your wooden wine boxes? Yes, you can. All you need to do is add wheels to the bottom of the wooden box, attach a handle to the front and your son or daughter can play with this thing all day long.

Moreover, they can look fashionable and trendy at the same time!

2.  Why Not Use Them as Shelves?

Remember when we mentioned that wooden wine boxes are durable? Well, since they are durable and can handle a lot of weight, you can turn your boxes into shelves. There are two things you can do: stand them up one by one against the wall or you can install them into the wall. That’s it. These shelves are perfect for decorative pieces or as artistic replacements for conventional shelves.

Indeed, wooden wine boxes look pretty and add an artistic flair to your home. That said, you can utilize your wooden wine boxes as modular storage. For instance, you can place a wooden wine box at the corner of the room, throwing your magazines, credit card receipts or USB cords inside. On top of the box is a nice lamp or plant.

3. Baskets Added to Your Bicycle

Have you always wanted to add a basket to your bicycle? Rather than having a basket that will eventually break apart because it can’t handle the weight, you can instead use a wooden box. This also makes the basket look a lot nicer than the crates for milk you generally see lately.

4. Dress up Your Garden

Finally, you can dress up your garden with these wooden wine boxes.

Before you incorporate this into your garden, you need to fill in the holes of your box so that the soil doesn’t seep out. With that out of the way, you can grow herbs in your garden, add some lovely new flowers or insert pieces of artwork to your garden. Whatever the case, you can easily dress up your garden by taking advantage of these decorative but also useful boxes. You will have your neighbours quite jealous almost instantly.

Wooden wine boxes are not just great ways to carry and store your bottles of merlot, Riesling, chardonnay or sauvignon blanc. They can also liven up your apartment, serve as great pieces of furniture for your café or give your tiny garden a little bit of a makeover.

The designs, the language and the resilience of wooden wine boxes make them attractive to own. Even if you aren’t much of a wine drinker, you should still try your best to get your hands on these boxes. Your home, garden or business will thank you for thinking of them.
