Wooden Food Crates: Don't Discard Them!
It is always good to find different ways to re-use materials that in other circumstances would be thought of as trash. This is the case of the fruit crates you find stashed in the back of grocery stores.
From time to time we collect these items to create things around the house, for us this is a great way to make projects with our children. This week as a project, we will be working on making shutters for our home.
We will start by removing the nails, cleaning the pieces, sanding them and arranging them together in the shape of a shutter, and painting them.
