EASY UPDATE

This up­cy­cled night­stand gives the clas­sic milk crate a whole new look. To make it, stack two crates and wrap parachute cord around the han­dles, in­set, to keep crates to­gether. Cut an 8×24-inch pre­fin­ished white dec­o­ra­tive shelf in half to make two 8×12-inch shelves. Stretch strips of pat­terned elec­tri­cal tape over the shelves for ex­tra flair. Cut four pieces of 3⁄ ₄- inch dowel to the width of the crates plus a few inches. Slide the dow­els through the crates to serve as shelf sup­ports. Place shelves on dow­els, and voilà, you have a stylish spot for books, games, ac­ces­sories, and more. RE­SOURCES BE­GIN ON PAGE 92.
