Crate Storage for 'the Necessities in Life'. :)

15 Minutes

We all have the same issue. Where do we store the extra toilet paper? It needs to be within reach but how can we do it in a cool way? My own answer came by simply screwing a rusty old licence plate onto an old crate, attach it to the wall, and voila, you're all set! Doesn't get much easier (or cooler) than this. :)

    Love it! My dad collected license plates. I'm always looking for ways to use them. What is the paint color on your walls? It looks like what I am looking for for my dining room! Thanks!
