We all know it can get pretty expensive when redecorating any room in your house, especially new furniture. I knew that I wanted a new coffee table, but was not going to spend an arm and a leg on a new one. So I made one using wood crates! I found my crates at Michaels Arts & Crafts. I was able to use a 50% off coupon on each of them, making them about $7.50 each.
This Crate Coffee Table made out of wood
4 wood crates
1 piece heavy duty plywood
1 can of wood stain
foam or paint brush for stain
4 caster wheels with locks
24 5/8 wood screws
electric wood sander (if sanding edges)
4 small L brackets
Stain or paint the top of your plywood and wood crates. You can use a foam brush, paint brush, or for more control use a towel or rag. Allow the crates to dry and keep in mind you will want to put on at least two coats.
