I have been inspired like the rest of you to create many goodies this summer. This was the last and final project....Seat Crates!
First of all...it is not as easy as it looks. And it is not cheap...unless you are like me and find good deals! We were lucky and had left over wood hanging around the house...so we used it! (no $)
I also had bought the crates last year so no $ this year (but about $12). Also, I wanted to find a cheaper alternative to the seat cushions. I found a stack of
ugly cushions that were not my style on sale - 4 for $5.
Then I found cute fabric for $5 a yard (and only used a yard!). Goes well with my color scheme (primary colors) and my theme (Space and Robots).
I also had cute ribbon hanging around which would have been another $5 for two. So, imagine it will cost you between $30 and $40 for four crates...
Time to make = an hour or less. I was lucky to have help from my husband with the cutting of the wood but I know other people had them do it at Lowes for them. Just make sure you measure each crate. They may be different sizes inside if you bought them at different times.
Anyway...they are adorable and I love them. I hope they last the year!!!
