Teacher gifts from soda crate caddy

I loved how these little crates turned out. I used scrap wood that I've had for so long..It's 2 different kinds of wood though which is why I painted them. I ran out of 1x6 boards so I used a 1x12 for the bottom. I hope my daughter's teachers will like them. I filled the cubbies with various little things like candy and Christmas ornaments.

I made the coffee table earlier this year and love it. It holds so much and it's filled to the brim with toys.
