I did everything on her blog exactly as she did and have to admit they were WAY easy to assemble.
1/4 yard of Fabric
Foam Mattress Pad
I stuck the board in the top of the seat because gluing it to the bottom (which is what the pin states to do) seemed like a waste of space! I figured we could put books inside the crate or something useful like that!
This is an EASY craft to do and I am ALL about easy. It only took me about 30 minutes to actually make the project after I bought all the supplies. BUT I just have a hard time wondering if it is worth the money to have such a homemade looking project!
The cost breaks down as:
File Crate: $4
1/4 Fabric Yard: $3 at Joanne’s (but you could make 2 with this)
Foam Mattress Pad: $12 (but you could make 10 with a twin mattress)
Plywood 2x4: $7 (but you could make 3 with this size of a board)
So... if you are making one of these, you will end up spending $26, if you are making at least 3 of them, they would cost an average of $12.33.
...You chose what works best for you but as for this pin, it was a success!
