Don't have wooden wine crates at home? You can easily get them from wine shops, and they're usually free. Or you can substitute vintage Coca-Cola crates for this project.
- 2 wooden wine crates (these are 12" x 12 3/4" x 4 1/4")
- 2 ornate trim pieces for the top
- 5 large wooden spools (about 1 1/2" tall)
- 4 medium wooden spools (about 1 1/4" tall)
- 8 cabinet knobs with bolts (if bolts are too long for thickness of crate, get shorter bolts)
- 7 white cup hooks (7/8")
- 9 wood ball finials (available at craft stores)
- 8 oz. acrylic paint (we used Plaid FolkArt Acrylic Paint in Wicker White #987)
- 1/8 yard white lace
- spray paint (we used Krylon Indoor/Outdoor in White #51508)
- 4 D-ring hangers with screws
- craft glue
- wood glue
- electric drill and bit
- 1" - 2" paintbrush (for crate)
- craft paintbrush (for spools)
Paint Crates, Finials, Spools and Trim
Paint both crates white (or any color of your choosing) with acrylic paint and the large paintbrush (Image 1). Paint the spools, finials and trim pieces white with the same paint and the smaller brush (Images 2-4). Let dry. Re-coat as necessary.
Spray-Paint Cabinet Knobs
Protect floor and surrounding areas with newspaper or plastic sheeting. Hold can six inches from the surface, and spray-paint the cabinet knobs white.
Attach Knobs to Crate
Using the chalk and ruler, measure and mark the locations for the knobs, spacing 4 knobs evenly across the top of each crate’s inside back wall. Pre-drill the holes for each knob (Image 1). Feed the knob bolts in from the back (Image 2) and screw the knobs on from the front (Image 3).
