I made a wagon from an old milk crate ($3. at a yard sale) for the grand kids, it's full of building blocks to keep them busy when they visit.

That's great. I have a larger fruit crate I would love to do that to.

Nice idea and looks great. Would be good for magazines or garden shoes by the back door or many other things when kids grow up.

I took this to a church consignment shop, they admonished me for "ruining" a perfictly good milk crate,but they still sold it for $85.,I bought it for $3. the rest of the parts were made from "on hand" scrap., I don't think their going to use it for a garden cart.

I think they got mixed up and used the wrong word. They should have used repurpose!

ruin = destroy, wreck, demolish, ravage...

repurpose = to give a new purpose or use to...

Actually, 22, ruined is what they meant, they said the wheels & handle took away the value of the milk crate, I still disagree, I don't think the value of the crate alone was more than $85.
