To say that Boston has a lot of students in residence is an understatement. With a quarter of our population here for higher education and on lower budgets, I can only imagine the quantity of milk crate constructions that are hiding beer and propping microwaves across the city. But I'll bet none are quite as classy as this console.
Shaun Moore is an owner of MADE, a modern design retailer in Toronto. He and Todd Caldwell shared their home on Design*Sponge a few months ago, and while there were many funky pieces and creative touches, this milk crate console table was my favorite. Like many of our readers, up-cycled milk crates aren't my taste, but in this instance the humble, utilitarian crate is balanced by classic Queen Anne legs that makes it work for me. What do you think?
