Little crates made from scraps hung on the wall to create a little extra storage in tight bathroom spaces.
Yesterday was supposed to be a day off, but somehow, it ended up being such a productive one.

And that was my day off :)
Oh, and I squeezed these little crates in somewhere
These are so easy to make. I used up my bundle of lath and some scrap 1x4s to make these for pretty much free.
1×4 scraps, 2 at least 12″ long
3 – 48″ long lath sticks
1 1/4 nails
2 – 1×4 @ 12″
10 – wood laths @ 13 1/2″
So here is the trickiest part – at least if you are sans a nailer. Glue and nail the lath to the back of the 1x4s as shown above.
And now the ends. And you are done! I added a two coats of Antique White in Satin by Valspar. These stack and hang quite nicely!
