Crate Coffee Table Tip

Crazy Puppy + Wine Crate Coffee Table = Something broken. So this precious little angel, Emma was a guest in our home for a few days. We were so happy to have her around.... well, I was happy to have her around. My husband and our two dogs quickly got tired of her endless amount of energy. Her last day here she decided to stand up on the Vintage Wine Crate Coffee Table and one of the slats broke. Here's a quick tip for fixing it up if this ever happens to you.
No, I wasn't upset with Emma. Her "father" had already
stuck one of his big feet through a different slat.

I grabbed some wood glue and a clamp, ran glue along the board and place the two pieces together. I wiped away the excess glue and clamp the boards together.
Once the glue dried I grabbed my Bostitch Staple Gun.
I placed glue on the edge of the crate and put my board in place.
Using my Staple gun I stapled the slat back onto the crate.
I stacked some books underneath and on top of the crate for support and weight until the glue dried.
And I was ready to go! Just need to touch-up the table with some stain and you'd never know it happened!
One more pic of Emma when she was a baby! So precious!
Thanks for stopping by!
