What would YOU use these for?


My husband lucked up and got these cool wood containers from work. He will have an unlimited supply of them since they normally get trashed. I have many ideas for what to do with them, but I want more ideas since we will have so many! So what would you use them for?

    A couple of them are definitely going to be storage. My husband brought home one today that is huge so it's going in the shed! So excited to have so many available!

    (Wish I lived in Colorado!) Raised beds was my first thought followed by storage. Worm farming is a good idea, good for my garden and for fishing! Good Ideas!

    Outside storage is great. A cheap plastic 1 from Sam's costs $100, so maybe find some spare plywood @ a residential construction site 2 cut down on costs. They r building a ton of houses n my neighborhood and I used spare wood 2 build a work bench

    That sounds like a nice table! I am not sure I could pull something like that off, but with the amount we can get I guess it wouldn't hurt to try it!

    Thanks! They will certainly be raised beds. He brought home an even bigger one last night that will be an awesome herb bed!

    Thanks! My husband informed me this morning that they come with lids that usually get thrown out. We are going to get some of the lids and convert to benches and composting bins.

    We were thinking of ways to make it profitable. I'm painting one today to see how it turns out! I'm so excited. I was kind of sad when I heard they were throwing away more than we could fit in the car each day! Thanks! I'm glad too!
