The table is easy -- just stack them up to the size you want, cover with something flat (plywood works), then cover with a table cloth. The footstool is a bit more work --- cover a piece of plywood (the size of 1 or 2 crates) with a pad and fabric. You can attach it with a large washer and screw. Hope this helps.

To make it a bit more sturdy you could fasten the milk crates together with plastic 'ties' - the ones you loop round and thread the end through a one way fastener - when they're pulled up tight they don't come undone but you can cut them off. If you are in the US and not sure what I mean from my very inadequate description(!) you could use thin tie wire to fasten them together.

zip ties!.. nice

nuts bolts and washers work

try stacking them and wrapping duck tape around them.

There are brown rolls of tape, as well as other crazy colors

wrapp the entire outer surface of how ever many you want to stack up, treat the tape as if it were molding and you were making ornate facial molding or the shelf.

There's a special chemical compund that permenantly joins the plastics it's placed on. You can find it at Home Depot or Lowes. Look for a product called PVC Glue. It's manufactured for use in PVC plumbing fixtures, but if you put it around the perimeter of both crates, and then clamp them together for a little while, it will create a nice secure hold.

Milk crates can be bought at Dollar General Stores. You don't have to "borrow" them and get arrested.

do you realize what it cost a company per year for stolen milk crates? Its up to a million dollars what dairies must put out due to people stealing these. Buy from your local hardware store, if you are caught with these the dairy has the right to fine you and or in some cases have a person arrested.

To answer your question, if you are still seeking an answer, for the foot stool, you turn one upside down and place it in front of a chair. For a table, you align several crates next to each other, upside down, and then stack a couple on top of each of the aligned crates.

If you really want to get genuine milk crates directly and not pay to resellers then it's better to buy them from manufacturer. The best quality I found so far is here: www.milkcratesdirect.com

You even can have your logo molded-in or hot-stamped.
