Summer is made for backyard BBQs, picnics, and camping. But sometimes it isn't very comfortable to sit ground-level while enjoying an outdoor meal.
Carry items in the plastic milk crate, then flip it over and you've got yourself a comfortable seat to enjoy this Summer, thanks to this clever idea.
First, measure your crate so you know how large to make the seat.
Cut pieces of wood to the same width and height of your crate. Be sure to cut enough to cover the entire bottom of the crate.
Measure how far in the holes are the side of the crate.If you don’t do this part correctly, you can run into some issues, so make sure to follow along with the video.
Mark the measurement on two of your wood slats on either side. This is where your bolts will be inserted. Drill a hole at this mark, large enough for your bolt to fit through.
You will have four cut boards (or more depending on the length of your scrapwood). The two on either end should have a hole on the top and bottom. The middle pieces do not need holes drilled.
Glue your wood pieces together with wood glue. Press them together and use a clamp to bond them overnight if necessary.
Flip your crate over so that the bottom is right side up. Place the wood piece on top of the bottom. Insert one bolt into each of the holes.
On the inside of the crate, thread a washer onto the bolt and secure with a nut.
Make sure that all four corners are secure. It should look like the crate in the video—even, pretty, and ready to make your outdoor activities 10 times easier!
What do you think of this plastic crate DIY project? You can use these as little tables or even as stools to sit on. They're perfect for a picnic.

Silver birch (Betula pendula) is a deciduous tree with a slender shape and graceful appearance, which has given rise to its lovely name of the ‘lady of the woods’. Silver birch trees look attractive year-round with white bark, spring catkins and yellow autumn leaf colour. The catkins and seeds are popular with wildlife such as bees and birds, while several species of moth lay eggs on birch leaves.
Hardy fuchsias are commonly grown in UK gardens, and it’s no surprise – many flower from June to November and need very little care. Native to Central and South America, most hardy fuchsias survive UK winters (RHS hardiness rating H4), although some may still require protection from the harshest weather (RHS hardiness rating H3 or H2). In milder parts of the UK, hardy fuchsias can grow into a shrub up to 3m in height but in colder regions they may be damaged by frost and require cutting back to the base, from where they regrow in spring.
A festive wreath welcomes guests into your home and sets the tone for the rest of the decorations.
