Jolene kept some old nail boxes in her garage for some time, waiting for a way to repurpose them into something useful. Can you guess what she made for her kids? Click to see what she and her husband did with one crate in an hour’s time, with a few tools and additional supplies. I’ll give you a hint: it involves eyebolts.

Jolene cut some holes for legs and her husband secured the rope before hanging it from a tree in their front yard. The result: sheer delight on their kids’ faces.

Thanks for sharing your project, Jolene! And for showing us the entire process over at Duck Egg Blue.
