So taking my cue from them I made this fun little footstool using a pop crate and one of my favorite Christmas sweaters I could no longer wear.
First I added some little legs to the empty crate by screwing through the inside of crate into some stubby spindles -- and I set it aside.
Then I used four 2x4 scraps to make a rectangle that would fit just inside crate. But first I attached a piece of plywood (so it kinda looked like an upside down crate). I put a small pillow on top of plywood, a little batting, and then the piece from my sweater tacking it down on all four sides.
All I had to do was drop that into the crate (okay, I had to wedge, push, and bang it in -- but there's nothing wrong with a tight fit). A couple screws up from underneath into the wood sections also helps keep it in place.
Time to put your feet up!
