Wooden crate bookcase! Saw other pins on this and had to do it. Crates from Joanne fabrics, stain and sealer from home depo. Total cost ( not including plants or pots) 110.00. Could have been cheaper if I wanted to be patient and buy the crates individually to make use of their 50%off 1 item coupon. Very happy with the end result. To make it feel like a solid piece, I nailed the crates together.
Crate bench with storage bins for students' journals... Super simple to make and not very costly. Supplies: milk crates (got them for free from Kroger), zip ties, plywood board, foam, fabric and matching storage drawers (from Lowes)
