I have been wanting to make some of these crate stools since I first saw them on pinterest last summer. My three nephews love to sit right in front of the tv and play video games so I thought it would make a great Christmas gift for them. They can also use the bottom to store all their games and such. Tracy actually took over the project and made them himself. He got the crates from Staples (about $8 dollars each), and used some extra wood he had left over from a project. I already had some of the camo fabric and the foam leftover from a headboard I made a few years ago. He did a great job and they are very sturdy! I think I will add the boys names to the label side of each crate. I hope the boys enjoy them!
