This is a project I started about a millennia ago for Oh' Boy 4th Grade's Trash 2 Treasure Party and somehow got sidetracked. Pinterest is probably to blame. Anywhoo... I started with these:
So to sum it all up, this project was not about money saving. These crates are on sale at Target and Walmart for around 3 dollars and already in funky colors. I spent more on spray paint and fabric than it would have cost to just get the new ones. But that's not the point. I had fun and I love the finished product!
