DIY OUTDOOR TABLE WITH STORAGE / TABLETOP TIC TAC TOE
Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great week so far! This milk crate DIY came to me after making a DIY Storage Bench. A lot of you guys wanted things that provided more storage. I was able to get 8 milk crates and rather than stacking them with only 4 bins (2 on each side), I wanted to create something with 8 storage bins/shelves. There really is no front or back because it looks good (and provides storage) at every angle. You can easily storage bins if you prefer to have your clutter hidden. They store A LOT of stuff and are very sturdy.
YOU WILL NEED:
Milk Crates/Zip Ties/Plywood
Assemble your milk crates how you want them. I liked the idea of having storage/shelving on every angle and all 4 sides so i assembled them like this.
I stacked more milk crates on top of them for height, catty-cornered. This way all 4 sides of the table will have storage/shelves.
I used zip ties to tie the crates together securely.
I then used an old door my neighbor gave me, cut it down to size, and painted it for the table top. I used scrap plywood for the shelving.
You could even make this smaller with only 1 row of milk crates, for a little kiddie table! Then you could use milk crates for little chairs You can paint it any color you want and customize it however you see fit.
You would need to put a protective finish on the table if you decide to leave it outside
