Using a basic wooden crate, recycled skateboard trucks from an old skateboard, and a few coats of paint, the folks at Project Little Smith created a stylish and practical storage unit that's perfect for kids, but could also be customized to work for a more mature set as well.
I really like how this cubby can serve as a shelf but also allows for easy transport of books, toys, and so on from room to room. And I really really like how inexpensive it was to make compared to similar ready-made products.

Recycled skate trucks were cleaned and attached to wooden crate to create mobility.
