A great storage solution - crates!

I was thinking of a new DIY project that could be used in any style space, from modern and sleek to country and cozy.  I came across some plain crates at a local craft store and realized that this was it!  From a crate, you can create (just with one letter more!) a storage unit, shelving, bookcase, wall shelf, display box and more.  If you have an authentic milk, wine or fruit crate, you don't need to do too much to add to its character. New ones can be used as is, or easily distressed, antiqued, and otherwise customized for your home. Take a look at these for some inspiration!
