Under Counter Fruit Bin ~ THIS is a real cool idea for kitchen storage (for other home organizing too). Could be an easy DIY project with crates. Paint to match your kitchen decor and free up some counter space!
By the way, I HATE the newest, cutsie, pretentious word - "up cycle" - you're being creative and reusing what would otherwise be called JUNK/TRASH! Repurpose / recycle - just call it that! Up-cycle is putting lipstick on a pig!
What a great way to recycle an old crate. I could use two of these in my living room. Since I do not have a coffee table, I could use these as side tables and then wheel them around to wherever I needed them. I am on a mission to find some crates!
