5 Food Pantry Ideas Using Old Creates: Up-cycling Ideas

5 Food Pantry Ideas Using Old Creates: Up-cycling Ideas. Hello friends.

I am a huge fan of up-cycling, refashion old clothing and re-purposing old items because I hate to chuck things away. I blame my Granddad for that!! I like to see what old junk can turn into too.

I love to recycle old bottles and jars and anything else that gives me an idea along the way. Glass bottles and clothing being my favourite things to up-cycle.

Do you like to up-cycle too?

What about old wooden crates too.?

There are so many ways to reuse new or old wooden crates and today I am sharing a few ideas with you.

5 Food Pantry Ideas Using Old Creates: Up-cycling Ideas:

Sometimes I receive them in a delivery and always find a neat way to use them again. They just look too go to throw away because they are brand new.

I have used them for all kinds of things like popping storing jars into them. Keeping my cookbooks all tidy together. Keeping all my baking ingredients in one place.

Once I even used them to store the games console bits altogether in the room. So neat and tidy.

Today I am sharing some great ways people around the world have been using their crates for all different purposes too.

1.) Shelves In A Pantry:

 How cool is this idea?  Shelves in a shop or shelves in your kitchen. This would be great in a pantry to store all your food in.

Sweet jars

2.) Food Shelves In Your Kitchen:

Using to store all your glass jars of food in it! I love being able to find what you need and when you need it.

I love to add some baking ingredients in jars like this too because when I need it I always have some in my jar because I keep them topped up.

Sweets look great in these jar on a create. A few cook books here, a few plants their?


3.) Wine storage:

Storing your wine in a cellar or garage. As soon as I buy a bottle of wine, I drink it. 

I would love to buy a lot at once and use this idea because sometimes you fancy a glass of wine and do not have any in. They you pay more at your local shop that you could have got it for at a supermarket.

4.) Recycle Storage:

Great for keeping all your old bottles and jars together in before you recycled or reuse them. I love to have a selection of bottles ready for anything that inspires me along the way.
