There are many crafts and upcycles out there using these wooden crates. I decided to cut mine in half and make two shelves out of it. My granddaughter needed a shelf below her television shelf in her room to place her Wii in, and I knew this would work perfectly. I will probably used the second one in my grandson’s room.
After cutting, I sanded it really well.
Here is one half of the crate after the husband cut it in half for me. I removed the bottom middle slat before cutting.
We nailed the removed slat to the front, and stained it.
I have a custom stain that I like really well, so I used it here. It is mostly Minwax Driftwood with some Ebony stirred in.
We cut a hole in the bottom, so we could put cord through. Another light sanding and it is ready to hang.
