We’ve ushered the new year in with lots of resolutions, and we’re sure you’ll agree that purging and organizing is on the top of the list! That’s why this week’s material of the week are milk crates.
Time: 30 MinutesCost: $20Difficulty: Easy
If you can find these at a local grocery, they are great for repurposing when it comes to organizing and storage solutions. You can also get them here.
DIY Crate Stools For Storage
You’ll love these storage crates that double as stools, created by Hometalker Melissa Woods.
3. Cover the foam and plywood with material and use a staple gun to staple to the board. Melissa used old t-shirts which did the trick!
4. To finish, Melissa added thin wood boards to the bottom that will rest inside the milk crate, forming a lid for the crate from the “seat” of the stool. This gives the stool extra extra support to function as a stool. Use a brad nailer to secure the wood strips to the “seat”.
Shoe Storage Milk Crates
This shoe storage idea using milk crates is so easy, and looks amazing...you’ll love it!
Grab your crates, a drill and zip ties and you’ll have an awesome shoe storage solution in no time.
3. Stack your crates, then ziptie them together. You can use as many as you want. Here, Hometalker Laci Jane used four to accommodate her small foyer.
