For those who follow me on Instagram (I’m a total addict – I’m OwlandAccordion if you want to find me), you’ll have seen a few pictures of me messing about with vintage wooden crates last week. Occasionally for work, I have to dabble in a bit of product photography, and as a long-term fan of everything rustic, this was one of my favourite jobs.

Wooden crates as a coffee table – my favourite!
Wooden crates as a seating area
Wooden crates as plant and garden storage

I’ve got a long-term dream of replacing most of our furniture with one sort of wooden crate or another, and you can see plenty of wood and wire goodness over on my house and home Pinterest board.

(For anyone who wants to know, these crates are from Scaramanga, and the dimensions and prices can be found on their rather lovely website. They also do lovely vintage bottle crates!)

    These are gorgeous! I love a good crate. I might try to get some for garden seating, they'd look lovely on our patio!

    I'm so happy I've found your wonderfully beautiful blog! I'm now your newest follower on bloglovin'. We've just got some pallets, that I'm turning into a chair for the living room, this has given me a bit of inspiration to get on it! 🙂
