2. Entryway Shelves

Coat racks are a dime a dozen feature that greet you at pretty much every entrance. Make use of the empty space on the wall by the door as your storage unit. Three wooden crates will make a great three-tiered floating shelf to store your shoes or wicker baskets. Coat the crates with soft white paint to create a harmonious look or choose dove gray, pale blue or beige for a more calming effect. (via homebnc)

3. Wall Bookshelves

Stacking your books on the table doesn’t seem so neat but buying a bookshelf isn’t your option either since you don’t have an extensive book collection. What you need is a custom-made bookshelf and it might perk you up a bit knowing that you can make two bookshelves with just one wood crate. Simply cut a crate in half and mount each one on the wall with brackets. This is surely a no-fuss organization method that you should try! (via onecrazyhouse)

4. Upper Cabinets

If plate racks aren’t appealing to you, then open wooden cabinets might be the thing you’re looking for. Turn your wooden crates on their sides so that the bottom parts are attached to the wall. Secure them with nails you set into the wall or simple brackets. Install them on top of your sink or countertop for easier access when you are washing dishes. Moreover, you still have extra spots to store your cans and jars on top of the cabinets. (via onecrazyhouse)

5. Colorful Towel Stowing

Repurpose your old coffee cans as storage to hoard your combs, lotions, brushes, or your curling irons. Pretty much everybody drinks coffee so Cabinets and drawers are sometimes very pricey and looking at your bank account alone almost make you have a heart attack. Yet, with a simple touch and modification on wooden crates you can create a bohemian style in your bathroom. Adjoin two or more crates and anchor them to the wall or on top of your sink and you will have your own shelves to store your towels and shower caddies. Choose bright tones to make your bathroom fresh and colorful. If you decide to mount more than two shelves, arrange them in an elegant manner to create a beautiful composition so that they will be fascinating to look at. (via usefuldiyprojects)
