Wooden Crates Become a DIY Storage Ottoman

One of the most popular DIY projects here on The Home Depot Blog is a DIY storage ottoman made from two wooden crates. It’s both practical and pretty. Stow away extra blankets, books and magazines in the wooden crates, and roll them away when you need extra space in front of the sofa. The best part is that you can make it in just one afternoon!

Kelly from Live Laugh Rowe created this gorgeous version of the ottoman to use in her living room. It houses her extra books and makes a great spot to put up her feet.

The supply list is short: two wooden crates, plywood, casters and brass hinges. Once the project is finished, you can use wood stain or paint it to match your personal style.

The casters make the ottoman easy to roll out of the way, which would also make it a great home for games and family activities. Use the top as a blank canvas to assemble a puzzle, or wheel it away for a rousing game of charades.
