Hi, everyone! Today I’m revealing my newest project and sharing it in the Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! Once a month I get together with some blogging friends, and we all share our latest projects that were inspired by projects we’ve pinned on Pinterest. The Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop is hosted by My Pinterventures is lots of fun and I love seeing everyone’s projects!
The pin that inspired me for this month’s blog Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop is the rolling book crate by Lemon Thistle.
I love the ease and practicality of making useful things for the home out of wooden crates. (Check out my four easy crate projects.)
I decided to make a rolling wood crate to hold magazines. My husband and daughters got me a gift subscription to HGTV Magazine a few years ago. Since getting that subscription, a few other magazines offered me trial magazine subscriptions. I now get at least 6 magazines in the mail a month!
Rolling Crate Materials
I decided to keep my crate simple, so I needed very few supplies for my cart. I like the natural wood look, so I decided not to paint my crate. (I decided to paint a small wooded letter to add to my crate instead.)
How to Make a Rolling Crate
To make my rolling crate, I simply picked up a large wood crate, a tall wood craft letter, some wood screws and 4 caster wheels. (I already had a drill, glue gun and glue, and craft paint at home.)
Once I got my supplies home, the first thing I did was screw on the caster wheels to the bottom of the crate. (Each wheel took 4 screws.)
At first I used a regular screw driver to screw on the wheels. But I eventually switched to an electric drill, since it’s a lot faster.
Once I secured the wheels onto the crate, I painted my craft letter. I used an inexpensive foam brush and some craft paint in a metallic copper color that I already had on hand.
I then used my glue gun and some hot glue to glue the painted letter onto the crate.
This was a simple project, and I loved how it turned out! It’s great to finally have a place to stash my magazines!
