Hanging crates for shelf space

Easy crate bookcase with table top. Makes for a great console in a hallway or behind a couch, or as buffet-style serving in a dining room.
Hanging wooden crates for storage (shoes gloves hats next to front door)--good for garage or mud room. Change it up to colorful milk crates and it could make useful toy storage for the kids room!
