While my husband was cutting the boards, I sanded the edges, and stained the bottom of the crate since it is now the TOP.
I guess it could be a seat, but my intention was for it to be a small side table to put on the deck.... to set your cola on !
The back piece (a side of a church pew) had been laying around my barn for too long. It was a quick decision to make it part of this crate table.... it works :)
Simple, simple, simple.

Crates-a-plenty, so I decided to change-'em-up a bit.  No need for much explanation. Cut some boards of your choice and get your drill out !!
