This vintage Coca-Cola soda crate got a re-purposed upcycled makeover and was turned into a stylish washi tape storage shelf! Great craft room accessory!
I picked up this dirty old vintage soda crate from a yard sale a few months ago for $2. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I thought it was super cool, and I had to have it. It hung out in our garage with an ever-growing collection of spiderwebs until a couple of weeks ago when I realized it would make a perfect storage shelf for my washi tape collection.
You can see by the hints of red paint on the side that this was a vintage Coca-Cola crate, and I really wished that I had been able to salvage the crate in the condition that it was in. Unfortunately, the original paint was so flaky and loose that it fell right off of the crate with the slightest touch, and I knew that wasn’t going to work in my craft room.
I spray painted the interior of the crate white so that my washi tape would have a bright and clean background to stand against. I wanted to add some of the yellow color back to the crate, so I used Chalky Finish paint to repaint the sides.
