Today we are kicking off with a DIY side table project. Just follow the steps and make your own rustic ‘vegetable crate’ side table!

⇒ Step 1. Collect the following material:

  • – Crate (secondhand)
  • – Table (secondhand)
  • – Grey stain
  • – Sandpaper
  • – Screws and screwdriver
  • – Brush
  • – Saw
  • – Wooden planks

⇒ Step 2. Cleane the table and sand it down.

⇒ Step 3. Screw off the tabletop.

⇒ Step 4. Paint the table with a grey stain to protect the outside of the wood (this way the table can also be used outside!).

⇒ Step 5. Attach two planks firmly to the table’s frame with nails. This will allow you to place the crate on the table and ensure extra hold.

⇒ Step 6. Screw the crate onto the table and voila: your rustic side table is finished!
