I love this latest project that I’m sharing with you. I made a small DIY wooden crate using shutter slats and scrap wood, which are plentiful around here.
These slats happened to be white. I found them in my paint cabinet where they were waiting to be used as paint sticks. I believe they were removed from this white magazine rack.
I started by cutting a scrap 1×10 in half then cutting the slats to 13″. I used my nail gun to make a frame to hold everything together.
The finished project ended up being 7.5″ tall, 9.5″ deep, and 13″ wide
Then I continued attaching all of my slats. I was very fortunate that my slats worked out perfectly, in fact when I was done, I only had one slat left.
I used a thrifted belt to make some handles for my small wooden crates.
I just sort of folded the belt in fourths.
I used my small combination speed square to make sure all the handles were installed the same.
I used regular drywall screws to attach the leather belt.
They’re perfect for the Headboard Kitchen Cabinet Bench.
Do you love them? I mean you could buy a small wooden crate from the craft store for about $12—but if you need several, why not gather the supplies and make them yourself?
