DIY crate – it’s easy mate



There are lots of second-hand crates around that look great and are really handy around the house. They can be expensive though, so check out the how-to video above to learn how you can make your own crate at a fraction of the cost of a shop-bought one. Once you’ve made it you can paint it whatever colour you like, distress and age it by sanding it back or even giving it a couple of good whacks with a chain. In the photos below you can see that we’ve finished ours by doing two different sides. One side is for Rosie, where we have painted her name on then sanded it back, and on the other side we have painted with blackboard paint and use it as a smoko seat – perfect!
