Creating something from nothing can be a bit scary, but it is really self-rewarding when you finally have the finished product in your hands. This particular DIY for discarded crates is a great idea for repurposingand addinga functional pieceto your home. It can be used as a storagefor a very small bathroom.

Utilizing crates can not only be inexpensive,it’s even easy to do. Turn it into something useful like a side table, maybe a centerpiece or storage for a verysmall bathroom. Personally,I know that my ideas come fromwhatever moves me that day!In this video, you will be able to see how easy it is to make your space more beautiful and even more practical!

Sohere we go. I already had some fabric left over from another project and some paint and primer (all in one) that I planned to use.However, I will list the most important items that you will need to work on this DIY project with me. Feel free to improvise and use whatever other material you have, as long as it gets the job done. There is no wrong way of doing this!

You will need:
1. Upholstery foam
2. Fabric of your choice
3.Paint and roller brush; as well as a regular paint brush
4. Glue gun/staple gun/drill
5. Sandpaper
6. Four castor wheels (optional)
7. A set of 2" hinges and half an inch and 3/4 inch screws
8. Ribbon

And so,I begin my DIY repurposed crate ottoman adventure. I acquired a couple of crates from my trip to a farmer’s market. They sometimes have no problemallowing you to have the crates along with your purchases. I just took my time and sanded my crates, used the primer and paint that I mentioned before. Ithelped cut my time in half since everything was already mixed together, I had used it before to paint my wood laminate kitchen cabinets and I had quite a bit left over. Next time I might even use the same paint and primer for my wood closet doors. But back to the task at hand…Take your time tohave everything lined up because it will saveyou some time. Ask a family member to pitch in if you feel you need some assistance. My finished product was lovely and it was super easy to make, not to mention I created some much-needed storage. Now remember; there is no deadline for this Crate ottoman DIY, this is your me time to get your creative juices flowing, so please feel free to go about your lives and get back to it whenever you want! I hope you have as much fun as I did when I made it!
