Repurposed Vintage Crate

Come see how I repurposed an old crate, inherited from my mom, into the cutest vintage storage unit for our kitchen!
I recently inherited this old crate from my mother. It is truly vintage. On the short side it says 'The Big Saver' in big red bold letters, and on the long side it also has the Royal Crown Cola Co. painted on it! (That's RC Cola, for you youngsters!)
I love this old crate... right down to its rusty old brackets that hold it all together
I also inherited this old copper bell. I love the patina! It looks right at home in the crate.
And one of the main things I needed storage for is our essential oils. As our collection has grown, I wanted a way to keep them easily accessible and attractive at the same time!
These are my favorite salt and pepper shakers... authentic miniature Ball jars from the 70's!
What would you do with a vintage crate?
