Wall Cubbies

These wall cubbies over my desk began life as a pile of raw wooden crates. I fastened them all together with screws, decorated them with rusty hinges and a number, stained the boxes with a vinegar steel wool solution and added corbels to the bottom. It makes a great over the desk organizer for everything from the stapler to dishes for paperclips.

docmom writes: Wow, where did u find all same size crates? I need to shop there. Have a set of mix and match size sewing machine drawers, cheese boxes, nail boxes....screwed together, some horizontal, some vertical, to make a storage piece in my bathroom. Some shelves for my vintage bottles I decanted mouthwash into, small tins for hair do dads, cream pitcher for toothpaste and brushes, gravy boat to stash my vitamin bottle....all hidden in plain view, but I do like the set u made with same size crates too...more organized for office stuff, since those things have a more uniform small size..This sight is a virtual idea factory...
