There are many DIY projects that you may consider doing but from time to time, you see one and know that it is the perfect opportunity for you to make something beautiful at home. This woodworking project fits perfectly into that mix, and you would be surprised with how fun and easy it is to make it yourself.
It is a wine crate coffee table and it is the perfect way for you to upcycle old wine boxes and crates. Even if you don’t have any laying around, you can buy some for about five dollars each in a number of different places. You might want to try calling around to some wineries or liquor stores to see if they have some available. You may even be able to get some for free!
Another option is to find them at a craft store, although they are going to be more expensive. You can typically print out an online coupon, however, and save yourself a bundle of money.
