Coke Crate or Coffee Table Wrangler

I have been trying to limit the amount of house stuff that I buy lately. When Holly and I visited the Curiosity Shop a few weeks ago, I saw a lot of stuff that I wanted but nothing I really needed. I saw this Coke crate and knew that I didn't want it but I NEEDED it!

The store had crates with lots of little compartments for individual bottles but I opted for the 4 section crate.
Coca-Cola is stamped all over the crate.

This crate was only $16.00! Pottery Barn sells Pepsi crates for $24.00 + S&H. I am a Coke girl and I liked the yellow paint on the crate I bought.

I love Hudson Goods use of this crate. They have a whole post on soda crates and some for sale on their site.

Here's how I decided to use my crate

I added some candles. I needed  to add some height to this centerpiece. The remotes fit in the space just right.

I left one space empty.  I didn't want to load the crate down with junk
I cleaned up the rest of the living room because the crate looked so nice.

  1. You are putting this crate to good use...hop over and share it at my party!


  2. Cool -- I use a similar one on my kitchen counter top; it holds pencils, notepaper, and vitamins! I love the sturdiness of it!
