Working in the marketing department of a bread company, I know a neglected bread crate when I see one.
Whether it be on a leisurely walk or during a night out in the town- I am always distracted by bread crates. And milk crates. And yes, wooden pallets. Some may find this a little odd….but I love the way their functionality extends beyond the means of carrying products.
Don’t diss these crates that are normally kicked to the curbside or neglected in a dark alley in Kings Cross.
There is more to them than meets the eye – see below for some truly inspirational repurposing of crates & pallets:
So cleaver. Bread Crates have never looked prettier!

Personally, don’t find this aesthetically great – but I think the design concept is fantastic. Such an interesting and innovative way to re-use old milk crates. The bold colours combined with the reflection of the light adds a sense of intense energy.

I want to make this – This re-used milk crate would be the perfect height to ‘milk’ a cow. From cow to chair – A full circle.

A great DIY project for a rainy day.

I am in love with this coffee table – so functional too (stores magazines/books). The rawness of the wood injects a sense of modern organic & nature into the interior. Works perfectly with that amazing floor lamp.

Next time you see a neglected crate or pallet ….don’t see it as junk, instead think about its endless potential to become something amazing!
