I have a ton of these crates! I love the store, and I really love the idea of turning them into seats. A little worried about the sturdiness though... Classroom Decor, Laugh Everyday, Kindergarten, Guided Reading, Storage Seats, Crates Seats, Storage Crates, Classroom Ideas, Classroom Organic

Considering making some of these...they'd be functional seating AND storage...a teacher's dream. On this blog the teacher got the crates, ply wood, stuffing, fabric, and ribbon. She then took the fabric wrapped it around the ply wood, stuffed it, then stapled it. To help open and close the lids she stapled a ribbon loop so she could pop the top off of them.
Crate seats...use plastic crates purchased from your local walmart, plywood cut to fit the top, foam, fabric and a staple gun. What a cute idea for a child's room or a classroom reading corner. The "seats" can lift off so you can use the crates for storage.
