I used four pallets for the project. Two rectangles were shaped larger ones and two smaller square ones. I lucked out that the two larger pallets were the same size except for the number and spaces of the slats. I chose the tighter slats to face out from the wall. For the top, I used slats from another pallet that I ripped and placed close together. I made the top separate so that I could remove it to clean the crate or remove the comforter. The door was rather simple. I just used a small section cut from the middle of a small pallet and attached it with simple hinges. The floor of the crate was just a piece of my old entertainment center cut to fit. I stained the crate and polyurethaned the top.
