Cardboard Box Into an Industrial Crate


I transformed an ordinary cardboard box into an Industrial Rolling Crate.

I cut the top off of my box and then used hot glue to cover it with burlap.

I had over hang to trim and glue down and cover the sides. Then I used the top I had removed and covered it with burlap. It popped into the bottom of the box to make it more sturdy.

I found super cute wheels, which screwed right into the bottom of the box.

It still needed a little something, so I stenciled some numbers onto the front of the box.

Then I added jute rope as handles on each side and I was finished!

It is sitting on our entry table to hold keys, sunglasses, pocket change, and cell phones.

    How sturdy is it? Super cute idea. I worry the kids would think it’s something to ride in. But maybe it’s sturdy enough.

    I don't quite understand how screwing wheels that size can hold up to only cardboard. It would seem to not be sturdy enough with constant use.
