This is a perfect milkcrate setup in an awkward spot. These four gallon milkcrates fit perfectly in between the stove and the chest freezer and to top it off – they found the perfect piece of marble in the trash. I’m pretty jealous of the whole thing. –> Apartment kitchen hacks from forkableblog.com via backgarage.com & the whole flickr photoset

Milkcrates and skateboards go back to the beginning for me. Playing with crates, stacking them to see how high I can ollie, and sometimes just knocking them down was the beginning of my love of the form. The misfits at American Misfits have done a series of these videos. This one just popped up on YouTube –>Fuel TV – Milk Crate Skatin. The timing is almost perfect, after watching the video and getting motivated, buy one of these, I Heart Milkcrate skateboards.
The Storvino is a wine storage system, that looks remarkably like a milkcrate. Each unit will cost you $19.99 and it comes in 3 nice colors, Nero (black), Burgundy (deep red), Blanc (white, get it they are like wines! … amazingly clever). You can buy them on Amazon, or learn more on the Storvino web site. Of course, if you don’t wanna spend $20 bucks you can just do this. –> milkcrate wine rack
Nike has just announced the new LeBron Soldier III for the 2009 NBA Playoffs. According to Nike “To keep him steady, the outsole tread was inspired by the milk crate he used as a hoop when he was a kid in Akron.” The photo below was from the Cavs/Pistons game yesterday, where LeBron dropped 38 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists and 1 steal – not bad while breaking in a new pair of shoes. The photo below shows the new shoe in action (different colorway) –via Nike.com
