How to make a bookcase out of a crate (=

Supplies needed:
One old crate
Some matching boards
A couple of nails
One obliging brother

Step 1) Find an old crate. Mine came from my Dad's garage.
Step 2) Convince your brother to put a shelf in said crate.
Step 3) Sit on a stool in the garage and watch said brother build a shelf in crate.
Step 4) Say "Thanks, you're amazing."
Step 5) Carry bookcase/crate to bedroom and fill with books.

  1. That is too cool. I just need to work on the obliging brother thing. It takes a while to find one. Or convince one into being.

    This is like one of your pinterest challenges, except cooler cuz' you thought of it yourself. So, brava!

    Love,
