Storage Crate Makeover

Everyone needs a little extra storage in their house. Somewhere to tuck the random magazine or stash the throw blankets when it’s too hot. Crates are totally useful for this, but they can also be a little boring. So I did this storage crate makeover for a fun and useful home accessory!

First you’ll need to tape off the bottom sides at the same level as the last wood strip.

Now you just need to attach your casters and drawer pulls. Note that somehow I bought stemmed casters which were a pain in the butt to put on, THESE are the casters that you want!

I love adding handles to things. Even though this crate already had slots for handles, I think the gold ones add a fun touch! You’ll need to drill two small holes the size of your handle screws in order to attach your hardware.

Now you’re ready to use this cutie anywhere in the house!

Petite Modern Life

Petite Modern Life

I'm Karisa. I live just outside of Seattle with my husband Michael {Mr. G}, our two cats, Rue and Archimedes, and our new Australian Shepherd pup in crime, Moose. We are do-it-yourself enthusiasts. I'm the dreamer, he's the strategist, and teamed up we get it done. In January 2014 we purchased our first house! The many adventures of remodeling, decorating, and inevitable redecorating will be documented here. I was born and raised in the PNW & I love the PNW life. Mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, trees, rain, and sun: every sight & season has its own flavor & tune. It inspires in me activity, coziness, and sprees of creativity. I'm rather obsessed with white paint, natural light, homemade pizza, and a glass of red wine.
