Wine Crate Bookshelves
-When hanging your bookshelves, use screws (at least one in each corner, and a few down the sides and middle), and try to drill into a stud. If you can’t find studs in the area that you are hanging your shelves, you can also use a anchors. You need these to be sturdy- books get heavy very quickly, so make sure that you take the time to properly hang your shelves.
-Wine boxes, in their previous life, were probably handled a bit roughly. Take a piece of sandpaper and rub off any marks, price tags, splintered wood, or damaged edges.
-Check the crate’s hardware- make sure that the nails are still holding, and that the crate is well constructed.My final tip…if you are ever in the Mad River Valley, specifically the town of Warren, make sure to stop for breakfast at *isn’t this a cool idea too…hanging stained glass windows as art!?
