I've always loved using old crates and boxes to decorate with. In my computer room, I have several that I store paper, scrapbooking supplies and misc. items. I have one in my bedroom that I use as a bookshelf and also an old milk crate holds a speaker for the tv. They're so versatile... you can use them for almost anything.
Today, I'd like to share some other ideas I found for using crates. These ideas were found on www.homemadesimple.com
