Milk crates are sort of storage’s dirty little secret: They hold a lot, they stack, they’re inexpensive, but they’re shamefully unattractive. Until now! Jenny Drinkard, a 25-year-old design student in Atlanta, had the genius idea to create a la carte add-ons to make Ye Olde Milk Crate even more of a storage powerhouse (with good looks, too): drawers, shelves, hooks, casters, wooden legs, corkboards…you name it.
Dorm rooms, kids’ rooms, even kitchen desks and mudrooms are about to get an upgrade.
Crates, $20, all add-ons sold separately. Available at Quirky and select Target stores beginning July 1.
