6 Sizzling Crate Projects To Do This Summer

It’s that time of year again, and right now our large crate is a SPECIAL BUY at Home Depot’s summer storage event (http://thd.co/1OQmlcR). We're especially excited that this year our multipack crates are also a SPECIAL BUY online (http://thd.co/29a98gN), which is all the more reason to pack, store, and save! As part of this campaign, we teamed up with six amazingly talented DIY bloggers to create summer projects using our crates and pallet wood.  Get a sneak peak of their projects below and visit their blogs for full project details and instructions.

Poolside Tower by That’s My Letter

Your kids won’t have to look for towels or goggles again! Jamie Costiglio of www.thatsmyletter.com used four large crates to make up this storage tower. She disassembled and resized one of the large crates to fit into the bottom crate as a large drawer. If you decide to leave the crates natural, you will need to apply a waterproof seal (Try this one here: http://thd.co/298RDz4 ). Or, if you choose to stain your crates, just use a polyurethane seal. You can also paint it any color to give it a protective seal. For full project details, visit Jaime's blog
