1. Crate End Table
Tip the crate on its side and attach some wheels to it. For a more custom look, apply a wood stain of your choosing.
2. Kids Wall Mount
Finish the crates in a color of your choosing. Either mount these crates directly into the studs (recommended) or be sure to use sturdy wall anchors. They’ll probably carry a heavy load at times with kids tugging on them and loading them up.

Keep shoes, dirt, and kid toys outside in an entryway piece that makes sense of your mess.

Create a dish holder that your dog can’t knock over or scoot around the floor with this re-purposed old crate idea.
