Nice ideas for creating bookshelves out of crates: DIY Crate Bookshelf Tutorial — Tara Michelle Interiors
diy centerpiece idea (enamel painted glass)- We have done this with simple mason jars, vases from salvation army. We can get that teal color you are looking for. Might be good for cocktail tables.
Love this idea for wine and beer bottles wrapped in yarn as wedding decor.
