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.

This DIY project will be featured in an upcoming Home Depot Do-It-Herself Workshop, where we’ll show you how to make this DIY storage ottoman yourself. We have details on that at the bottom of this post.
