We Did It, Too!

This is how Tanya and I spent our morning.  We made 18 of these adorable crate storage seats.  We are using them for our small group tables and at the computers that the students will be using. We love the fabric because it goes so well with our western theme.  Tanya picked it up at Hobby Lobby.    We first saw the idea on the blog, What The Teachers Wants.  Thanks for the idea! I know there are more of you out there that are going to make these.  Happy crafting!


  1. Looks great! I have a few of those crates in the closet I could do that with. Depends on how much I get done this week. What did you guys use for the cushioning?

  2. I was taking a nap today and I heard all this noise going on in the garage, but I didn't get up to see what it was. Lo and behold it was my mister cutting the wood for me to make my crates!!!! I love this guy!

  3. Melissa, we used a roll of foam cushioning you can buy in the craft department at Walmart and we used a full size egg crate foam mattress cover. We just cut them to fit. The egg crate was much cheaper.
    Janine, he is too sweet!!

  4. Ladies, these look AWESOME!!!!!!! I just love them! The fabric is fabulous! I love my crates too, but have you tried them next to a table? They are quite short! I wanted to use them for my guided reading table, but I'm not sure that'll work.

  5. This so cute! And the kiddies will one them! Happy teaching!!

  6. These turned out adorable!! I plan on making mine this weekend with my husband. I will have to let you know how they turn out.

  7. They look wonderful! I need them for my room. Do you feel like making more?

    Great job!
