Rustic Crate Trunk

Today, I decided to do a little project that would be somewhat functional and that would fill a void in one corner of my living room.  It started with two old crates that I've had sitting in the basement.

I went to Home Depot and bought all of this...

First, I painted all the black with the exception of the castor wheels.  Next, I attached the wheels to the bottom of one of the crates.

Then I attached the hinges to the inside of the crates using one of the crates as a lid.  I secured the corner brackets to the top and bottom crate, added the handles to the sides and the latch/lock to the front of the crates.  This is it finished...

Thanks for stopping by...



  1. What a beautiful job!! Congratulations and thank you for the inspiration! Love your blog!

  2. They look amazing, what a creative idea and one I'll copy. Thank you.

  3. Saw your feature at Saturday Sparks and had to stop by. Your crate project turned out wonderfully. I like that you can use it as a side table as well. Going to check out some other posts on your blog now that I've found it!
