Monday Made It (or Sunday Made It)

So I finally broke down and made these crate seats that have been floating around blog-land for two years! Here's my tutorial:

Go to a home store and have a nice man cut you some wood pieces.
Be sure to take your crate!!! 
Buy some foam at a craft store.  Cut it to fit the piece of wood.
Buy some cute fabric and staple gun it to the wood.  I wrapped mine up like a gift! 
Put in your classroom! Ta da! (Use in place of chairs in case you already have 24 kids and the list is growing...)

Also, I made this little W for my classroom!

A little paint and ribbon and you have a masterpiece!
I made something else super cute and creative (so I think but someone probably already made it and it's on Pinterest...) but I will share that with you tomorrow! Be sure to head over to TpT for the last day of the big sale!

I was thinking of making those chairs, but I'm afraid they'll sit too low. Thoughts?

I love those chairs! I made some last year and they were great for storage too! :) I love your color scheme too!

Is that plywood you're using? I have the exact same size crates, what size was each piece of wood if you know? They look great by the way..
