Design Sponge did a little piece about throwing a party for kids on a budget. The party is quite elaborate and includes a photo booth, with a vintage milk crate stool for the kiddies. I think I could put my dogs Punkass & Snoop Dogg up there. They’d mug for the camera. –> A Creative but Budget-Friendly Kid’s Party via Design Sponge

If you don’t know ESPO then you need to educate yourself and learn the ways of the modern mastermind. If you would have asked me, sight-unseen, “how many milkcrates ESPO does have in his studio?” My answer would have been, “about 20.” I think I would have been pretty spot on. –> Steve Powers ESPO at his studio in New York City, via The Selby
Jason sent in this amazing milkcrate find from the archives of Popular Mechanics. The February issue from 1984 featured this great DIY milkcrate project–a personalized inner tube boat. All you need is a six gallon milkcrate, an inner tube, standard lumber and a motor. If you haven’t heard, the entire history of Popular Mechanics is available online now, check it out. –> Popular Mechanics, February 1984 with milkcrates
Garrett Grove has a ton of great wedding photography on his site, but these are of particular interest on our fine site here.
Another awesome user submitted project: the milk crate mud room. Rick, from Portland, sent this in and explains that he uses a simple french cleat to attach the crates to the wall in a clean way. He even bought new crates at the container store. That’s not exactly how I would have done it, but different strokes for different folks. Thanks Rick.
This video came by way of Tosh.O on comedy central. I went and found the original on YouTube and I must tell you: this video is rough. It’s not for the feint of heart. Young Andy attempts this milkcrate stair stunt and needless to say, he does not make it. Milkcrates in the wrong hands are dangerous. –> Andy Breaks Wrist via YouTube
