I have been wanting to do this project for quite some time and well...I just haven't gotten around to it and so this last weekend I decided that it was time and we went for it! The great thing about this project was that it cost just under $15 to make!
I had pinned this adorable idea on pinterest months ago.
However as cute as they are, they are way out of my budget....maybe in another life I could buy these and shop at anthropologie and jcrew and eat at Cheesecake factory every week. Haha okay maybe not but I decided that I would find an affordable way to replicate these and I have.
So here we go.
I found these crates at Joann's fabric store, I wanted the bigger size but our store only had the smaller size. They are originally $11.99 but in the weekly paper or online there is usually always a coupon for 40% so this crate cost me just under $7.50
The wheels and bolts I got at Home Depot
|This pack of 4 cost about $5|
|I think the bolts were around $2|
I'm not good at handwriting things so I used letter stencils I had on hand and used a sharpie to write the word "TOYS"
Next we stained it, I already had a small can but if you had to buy some you could find some for around $5. We wanted a dark stain so we let it soak for awhile.
|see how small that can is... the color is "ebony"|
Then we put the wheels on....well my amazing husband did!
The finished product!
This project literally only took us a couple hours to do and was super easy! My favorite part, is that it rolls!!! How fun is that!
Now to put the toys in it!
