Do you want a rolling crate for easy storage? We have limited storage space in our place and I needed to find a way to store blankets and other bulky items. I found just how to do it using wooden crates! These are perfect for a small space and can be used for so many different purposes. These would work in a craft room to store larger items like glue guns. They can be made to fit perfectly under a craft table. They can also function as a utility cart in the garage or utility room
Rolling Storage Crate Materials
They sell these crates everywhere, and mine came from Walmart. You can also find crates with a durable plastic frame if you would prefer that over wood.
Rolling Storage Crate Instructions
I decided to lightly sand the crate since we’d be storing blankets in them and our hands would be reaching in and out of them.
I went to Home Depot and grabbed some wheels and screws. The longer screws would be done in 3 of the 4 holes and the smaller screw would go in the last hole.
*Hind site, I would have bought the wood crates with the extra wood in the 4 corners so that I could have used the same sized screw in all of the holes.
I started by drilling a pilot hold in first where all of the screws would go. This would prevent the wood from splitting when I placed the screws in. I then screwed in the screws in all 4 holes of all the wheels.
Here’s the completed rolling crate.
I placed my blankets in the storage cart and wheeled it under our side table.
