Milk Crate Ottoman

 I went to an auction a couple weeks ago and picked up two old milk crates, and thought about turning them into ottomans. I had already seen a tutorial on how to make these here , it looked easy and so cute. 



 I had all the supplies on hand. The canvas came from an auction too! I think the industrial canvas goes perfectly with the look of the crate.


I cut out a piece of plywood to make a bottom on the ottoman.


 I had some wheels from a cabinet that I added to one of the crates.


 The lid is removable so it can be used for storage.


 The back looks nice too, so you can use it to set something on it. Only the one with wheels is still  available in our Etsy shop.


And here's a rocking horse that we also found at an auction. I painted it and distressed it and now it looks much cuter than when we found it. This is also available in our shop
 Have a blessed week!
