Milk Crate Seats

I am looking for the instructions on the milk crate seats. Could someone help me find them. A friend of mine said they were posted in this group, but I am having trouble finding the actual instructions on the size of the wood to be cut and the type of foam needed. Thanks!

That should get me started. I may just have to get the crates and then measure for the wood inserts.

I also made some crate seats. I also added the loop on the side. My room is blue and yellow, so I found a very cheery yellow fabric. I think the kids are going to love them. I'm just going to use them for extra spots around the room for reading as well as storage. Thanks to all the PTers for the great idea.

Very cute! Did you attach the foam/ fabric to the wood? That is the only part I'm not sure what to do? I'm just worried about cleaning the fabric if it is attached to the wood... maybe I'm just over thinking it!

Teacherpippi said (and she is the one I think got this crate seat craze going) that she did not attach it to the wood. The wood had a hole in the middle like a finger hole so that you could take the wood out. The cover was made more like a pillow case that had an opening in the back so that you could slip the cover off of the foam and wash it.

Here is the post where she explained it.

I have started mine. I got black crates and a zebra print material for the cushion. Can't wait to finish.

Yes, I did staple it to the wood. First, I used an adhesive spray and glued the foam to the board. Then, I stapled the fabric to the wood. I used an indoor/outdoor fabric, so I can wipe then clean with a wet sponge and a little cleaner. Good luck making some. The kids are going to love them.

I hope the kids like it. I love that it is bright and cheery as well as easy to clean since it is indoor/outdoor fabric.
