Excellent idea for the crate, and i do like that you left the crate pretty much as is :thumbsup:

I like clear shelves and lights cause it really shows off the finds well. Very nice :thumbsup:

Great work, and re-using old materials always makes a thing like that unique.

Very nice, shows the benefits of the, that will come in handy one day stash.
Like the bullet as a handle but you may need to wash your hands after closing the cabinet, before munching the old Cheese and Onions or whatever flavour you prefer.
Well recycled, :thumbsup:
