Cantilevered Milk Crate Storage Bench

Charlie Vinz of Chicago built this cantilevered bench himself for next to nothing. The milk crates provide a storage base and he used 2x4's from left over from framing his house to mount it all to the wall. The idea's pretty industrious...

And while this particular execution wasn't done with prettiness as a priority, we could see this exact same idea built with more precision looking pretty terrific. We're thinking in a mudroom or entryway: you could sweep easily below the cantilevered design, sit on the bench to tie/untie shoes, and store said shoes in the milk crates. Via: South 12th.
