Milk crates are very versitile, and for many, a college staple. Often it doesn’t take more than a few bungee cords or a length of rope to turn a few into whatever storage or furniture solution you need. Here’s a chandelier made from several. The linked article also has several other milk crate furniture mods. Via Core77.

  1. I have a set of shelves made out of 6 milk crates. Zip-tied them together. I keep all minds of stuff in them, mostly old textbooks though.

    Milk crates are awesome. Maybe someone should post any good (legal) ways they know to acquire them? Mine were stolen for me by my ex-girlfriend from her fast food job.
