A Great Kids Table With Crates DIY

This DIY kids table using crates is adorable.  I beats the tiny thing my kids used when they were little.  If you want a larger table use an extra set of crates.  Find the right size plywood and sawing won’t be needed.  Thanks to Petticoat Junktion for a clever idea.

I love wood crates. What about you guys? Crates and Pallet asked me and several other DIY bloggers to create a holiday project for their Sawdust & Snow campaign.  I could make anything I wanted ….yea!! I have problems with project restrictions. Something always goes wrong.

I thought about the project for awhile and decided to make something that could be used year round. No worries about packing this table away until next year. The kids crate table workstation can be used everyday. The table features storage for books, puzzles, etc. and a large work area. It also makes a great dining table for the kids. When I was growing up we always had a kids table and an adults table for the holidays.
