Our kitchen in the new-to-us house is predominantly gray. It needed (a) storage and (b) some color. As you might remember from other rooms of mine, I like red as a pop of color in each room. For example:
The kitchen cart and Coke crate provide that pop of red to spice up (ha – get it?!? DIY humor!) the kitchen.
That is the bar cart from our old house. I turned it back into its original purpose as a kitchen cart.
To hang the crate on the wall, I held it up against the wall – empty – and made sure it was level. Then I drilled holes through the crate into the wall. On one side, I had a stud to drill into, but not on the other. I added wall anchors to those holes and then attached the crate to the wall with screws.
You can find vintage Coke crates at salvage stores, antique markets, consignment stores, or thrift stores. I found this one at a consignment store but I’ve seen stacks and stacks of them at a local antiques market.
