DIY Painted Toy Crates Storage Nursery

Finally, a nursery DIY!! Poor baby number 3 is getting the shaft and does not have anything really done in his nursery… I figure I have a few months while he hangs out in the bassinet to get the nursery done.

I always need more storage and I made painted toy crates for the girls a couple years ago and we love them and they are still in use, so baby boy can get some of his own!

Wooden Crates
Set of Casters
Craft Paint
Paint Brush

I picked up the wooden crates at Michaels on clearance and you can find them there or a home improvement store.  These wooden crates were thin wood, so I decided to glue the casters to the wood instead of screwing them in, we will see how long it lasts once the kids get a hold of them…

I free handed the cross design and for the bear I used a couple materials to help.

To get a round circle for the bear’s head, I used a paper plate and painted around the curve:

For the bear ears,  I used a plastic cup:

I would have loved to use a paint pen instead of a brush to make it easier but my paint pen had run out of paint and I was determined to get the toy crates done on that given day.
