3. Press or clamp together for approximately 30 minutes.

4. Let dry for 24 hours.


Once the glue is dry and the crate is sturdy, the kids can paint the crate however they would like and make it their own. These wood crates are perfect for storage outside as well as inside. They can be used to store toys, books, extra blankets, shoes or pretty much anything.

And if you dont want to use your crates for storage, glue a few together to make your own coffee table and give a new rustic look to your living room.
