Crate Storage Locker
Looking for some storage ideas? Making this storage locker out of crates is a simple way to create storage without taking up much space. You can use it for your kid’s art supplies, use it for gardening supplies or as tool storage. This is a simple project that can be completed with little to no skills, just a few simple tools.
Start with basic crates. You can choose the combinations you like for the size storage locker you need.
Add 4 pieces of 1 inch scrap wood to the inside of the top crates. This is to hold the peg board(optional) away from the back of the crates so you have room for the pegs.
Secure each crate in place by using 4 screws in each corner of the crates. I turned the storage crates upside down so that the screw heads would not be seen on the top sides.
Place the 4 casters on the bottom of each side of the storage locker, making sure to place the casters on the outside edges.
Carefully remove the backs and the top slate of the front from the small crates. Once the 3 slates are removed, staple them on the top of the small crate, creating a double shelf. Secure each shelf, by screwing in the middle of the center crate.
Cut peg board to fit the inside of the top crates and secure in place using the Air nailer. This step is optional if using peg board in your storage locker.
