A crate is only a crate... unless you add some castors and a top, creating a cool looking side table with storage!
Tricia needed a side table for her patio and decided a repurposed crate would be perfect! Once she landed the perfect crate, she prepped it for outdoor use, added the castors and top and filled it up.
In the summer, she uses the crate for her gardening supplies and come winter, it'll hide the outdoor throw pillows. Genius!
What I LOVE about this:
Crates look cool on their own, but to flip them into a productive piece of furniture just works. I agree with using things that double up in productivity. No one in the world ever has enough storage!
