  • Drak brown paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Sandpaper
  • Screws
  • Power drill
  • Nails
  • Hooks
  • Cardboard
  • Small square mirror


Step 1

First, grab your sandpaper and start sanding each piece of crate making sure to smoothen any rough edges, then set them aside. Measure the total length of your 2*4 wood, then divide it evenly into 4 pieces. Paint each piece of crate nicely as well as the 4 pieces of wood, then set them aside, and let them dry completely. Start assembling the crates together, simply place them on each of their sides horizontally with their open sides facing out, then secure them in place using screws.

Step 2

After assembling the crates together, you should see a square and hollow center, take its measurement, then cut out a piece of cardboard according to that measurement, and paint it as well. Build the 4 pieces of wood to create a square frame, then attach it underneath the crates using nails, this will be the table’s feet. Attach 4 pieces of small hooks inside the hollow square on each side, then place the cardboard on top, and the small square mirror above it.
