Wine Crates Useful D.I.Y Material

With Christmas and New Year's party time over, some of us gardeners may be "blessed" with a collection of by-products, such as empty wine bottles, and wooden crates.
Town & Country Gardens, proposed one good use for empty wine bottles, in its July, Beautify Me, Please! section; - below, are a few ideas for utilizing empty, wooden wine crates.

Wall art panels (pictured)
Detach decorative parts of different crates, and arrange them into decorative wall accent panels.

Shed's storage
Filled with sand, they are perfect for storing root vegetables, and flower bulbs, over Winter. Filled with newspapers, they will make a good home for apples.

Shed's shelving
Easy, just mount them vertically on top of each other, and secure with screws. They will be great for books, seed packets, etc.

Hens' boxes
Let your chickens enjoy fancy new beds. Simply fill them with straw, and let them lay eggs, there.

Re-face your working counter or kitchen table or use them as flooring.
Simply detach the panels and glue or otherwise, attach them as a top layer on your floor, then apply a clear finish, a voila!
