DIY Wooden Crate Bedside Tables

Wooden Crate Pallets have a way of warming a home. If you are new to DIY’s and know the basic skills of the crafting then a side table with a square top and leg is will be the most practical item for you to start off with. This is a quick and easy DIY to do for beginners.


This is what you will need:

  • 2 crates (I got my from Timbercity, Woodstock)
  • 8 wooden legs, mine is 40 cm long (I got mine custom made by ABK Furniture, Woodstock)
  • White chalk paint (paint of your choice, I went for a more natural look)
  • Varnish to protect the wood
  • 8 screws
  • Drill


Step 1

Paint your crates with the colour of your choice. Allow to dry. Apply a second and third coat if necessary. Let it dry overnight


Step 2

Apply the varnish and allow to dry overnight


Step 3

Ensure to make off the place where you would like your legs to stand

Drill legs into crates with screws


And you done 🙂


This you can used as a book storage stand, bed stand or bathroom stand by putting in some cute baskets that fit in the spaces to hold toiletries.
