Under Counter Fruit Bin ~ THIS is a real cool idea for kitchen storage (for other home organizing too). Could be an easy DIY project with crates. Paint to match your kitchen decor and free up some counter space!
Stain/paint crates, add a pair of shelve racks, and you have an attractive storage unit for towels or anything else that requires easy access. Reinforce the crates by securing with screws through the wood into the wall.
