Have you seen all the amazing crate furniture on Pinterest? I might be a little late to the party but I'm so glad I finally showed up. For M's new room we struggled to find a nightstand we liked, so we decided to make one ourselves.
Paint and paint brush
Joiners, screws, and screw driver
First we painted the crates. They were rough but we decided against sanding them and instead embraced the rustic feel. We made sure to paint all sides except the bottom, which would be against the wall.
Once they were dry we debated sanding them again but, to be honest, we were lazy. Instead we just stacked them together and used the joiners to attach them.
See how short those instructions are? That's how easy this project was. As I said above, I'm so glad we finally jumped on the crate furniture bandwagon.
Also, did you notice in the above picture the room is finished? It is, and she moved into it earlier this week. I need to catch up on posting our progress and I'm so excited to show you her finished room.
