Wine Crate Side Table

It is hard to believe this side table is made from 4 wooden wine boxes, screwed together. We liked the designs so much we decided to give the boxes a wash of watered down emulsion so that the original design shows through.


You will need:

4 Wooden wine boxes

Some off cuts of wood

Set of 4 castors £7.14

White emulsion






Tape measure


Step by Step Instructions

  1.  Fit boxes together to make sure they are the same size and make a size you like, either low and wide for a coffee table or high and narrow for a side table.
  2. Add glue to the sides of the boxes that are going to be touching and stick them in place.
  3. Drill holes and screw the boxes together.
  4. Measure the depth of the crate and cut 2 batons from your wood off cuts to this size.
  5. Screw the two batons onto the base of the crate, this is to hold the castors.
  6. Screw the castors onto the ends of the batons at the bottom of the crate.
  7. Water down the white emulsion and paint the inside and outside of all the boxes.
