Remodeling a whole house can cost a fortune turns out and can use up loads of resources not just including $. So to lessen that amount using repurposed materials is always ideal. This project focused on the laundry room and saved loads of cash and gave a few food crates an extra life!
Step 1: The Crate
I didn’t take a picture of the assembled crates but this is a close example.
Each Crate had 4 walls and a bottom and an open top. Made from either ¾ or 1” plywood or luan. Each wall measured close to 48”x48” the walls were attached to one another using rivets which had to be drilled out or hammered out using a punch. Apparently food crates can only be used 1 time to carry food then they are deemed dirty and up for grabs to be reused.
16 pieces of walls and 1 bottom were salvaged
