ONE MORE IDEA
Transform a pair of milk crates into a durable and stylish bedside bookshelf that’s just right for a kid’s room.
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.
