I have been obsessed with crates lately, I just love how many different functions they have in a home. I have them in almost every room in my home. I wanted to make one crate portable in which I can switch around in my home and that is just what I did. No power tools needed for this portable magazine holder stained crate. It can even be used as a side table to keep cute little things. The other great thing is that you don’t have to make the crate just purchase it from your local craft store, I even noticed that Walmart has wooden crates!
I went to my favorite craft store and purchased a wooden crate. I then stained the crate in a dark mahogany from minwax.
After it was dried I purchased wheels at the local hardware store. They have a few selections to choose from and I decided to go with the classic black wheel. All I needed to do was just screw drive to attach them to the crate. No power tools needed for this DIY.
I decided to place a few of my favorite things on my new magazine side table. The picture of my son and his pop pop and flowers of course because they always make me smile.
