i ♥ these crates...sometimes i dream about where i will put them
& what will go in them...
trust me, once you make one, you will make many :)
this was actually my first, very own, using power tools project! thanks to the chief i now know how to use a table saw, chop saw and super duper powerful air nail gun thingy...thanks honey for teaching me ♥
to make one (or 20) of your own you'll need...
(69cents @ Lowe's)
• 3/4inch pineboard or any scrap wood you have layin' around will do...
• power tools: we used a table saw, chop saw & nail gun
• wood glue
...cut 2 end pieces...mine were 7x7 some were 8x8
i used 4 yardsticks cut in thirds for a shorter crate
and 5 yardsticks cut in half for a longer crate...
use wood glue for extra reinforcement
line up the yardsticks and nail together...i used 4 on the bottom and 4 on each side
i mod podged paper on the insides & outsides of the 2 end pieces and filled the crate with mason jars...
aren't they so cute!! i plan to use these for storage in my pantry for right now...but wouldn't these be perfect in a craft room?
go crazy 'n make yourself some...
Update! Check out these crates and some of my other projects on Colorbok's blog...the official makers of the Flea Market Paper line!
