I painted both crates with off-white chalk paint to match the rest of my decor, but choose any color you like!
After your paint has fully dried, apply a thin layer of glue to the bottom of the smaller sized crate.
Place the smaller crate on the larger one creating a step stool.
Are you tired of stuff piling up around the house? You're going to love this DIY project!
You can paint your crate any way you'd like. I created a simple wash by mixing acrylic paint with some water.
Using sandpaper, file away any rough edges and brush away the debris.
I like working with a sponge brush as opposed to a bristle brush for this project to avoid unsightly brush strokes
Screw in four caster wheels at each corner and get ready to roll...
Make yourself an ottoman - the perfect addition to your patio!
This is where you will store the ottoman when you're not using it.
Turn the crate upside down and attach one caster to the corner using the screws.
Including the caster in your measurement, measure from the bottom of the caster to the height of the underneath of your chair.
Mark the height, draw a line and remove the excess wood/crate using a saw.
Remove the caster, sand and stain the wooden crate. Allow to dry. Seal the crate using a wood sealer.
