I had some, but bought some on ebay - I just searched on our favorite wine names + crate lid or panel (i.e. caymus crate lid or caymus panel) thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

For an extra unique touch, Heffernan's husband had the brilliant idea of creating a different type of backsplash in the butler's pantry — wine crate lids from some of their favorite Napa Valley wines! Overall, the kitchen turned out exactly as Heffernan had envisioned. "Along with the family room, it's where we spend most of our time," says Heffernan. "It's the best of both worlds. It's expansive enough to accommodate lots of people, yet it's still cozy." Have a great kitchen of your own? Please share a photo below and tell us about it.

8. Wooden crate tops. If you like to buy wine by the case, collect crate tops to create this wine lover's design. Most wooden crates are unstained and unsealed, so whatever comes in contact with them is likely to cause some damage. If you don't want to seal the tops yourself, use this backsplash in a spot that doesn't deal with a lot of water or liquids, like this butler's pantry.More creative ways with wine cratesMore:10 Gorgeous Backsplash Alternatives to Subway TileBrowse thousands of inspiring backsplash designs
