SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 3 Wooden crates, unfinished
  • 2 acrylic paints in school colors
  • 1 Jar of white home decor paint
  • 1 Medium paintbrush
  • 1 Detailed paintbrush
  • 4 boards 4”x36”x1/8”
  • 4 Parson legs from a hardware store
  • Wood glue
  • Quick Grip glue
  • Clamps
  • Drill and medium drill bit to match screw on Parson legs
  • Staple gun

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Paint the outside of the wooden crates white and let them dry.
  2. Paint some of the inside slats in school colors.
  3. Using wood glue and Quick grip glue, put glue on the sides of the outside slats where the crates will be touching each other. Clamp the crates together and let them dry.
  4. Paint the wood boards white on one side and let them dry.
  5. Glue 2 of the boards on the front side of the crates to help support them as a unit. Place weight or books on top of the wood boards to help press them while drying.
  6. Turn the group of crates over (top down) and glue two more boards on the bottom of the group of crates. Staple them to the bottom of the crates.
  7. On each corner of the boards (make sure you are over the board and the slat of the crate) drill a hole for the screw of the Parson leg. Do this for all four legs.
  8. Apply Quick grip glue in the holes and wood glue around the parson legs where it is going against the boards. Press the legs firmly into the holes. Let the entire book crate unit dry upside down overnight.

JOANN Hacks:

  • Make sure you are placing the legs on the boards and centered over a slat from below for extra strength.
