Old milk crates have been used for years for storing record albums, books and kids’ toys. Here’s something you may never have thought of: convert them into a child’s seat!
Just take a piece of fabric, lay it out on a table, then add a piece of two-and-a-half-inch thick foam. Top that with a piece of plywood cut to slightly larger than the crate’s dimensions.
Staple the fabric in place and then screw four cleats to the underside of the cushion — without the cleats, this could slide right off, so there are four simple cleats cut from a 1-by-2.
Now, your kid has a comfortable place to sit and a great way to store toys!
