What I did probably isn't all that different from what most have done.
Basically I just mounted the mill and motor to a scrap board that I sit on top of some buckets during milling. One bucket catches the milled grain, the other (in addition to holding the mill) is a spare as I usually can't fit it all in one bucket. At the end of the day, I just pull the hopper off and hang the whole thing on the garage wall.
I'm sure there are plenty of better looking mills in the forums. Mine's purely functional; it doesn't look great but at the end of the day it crushes grain relatively problem-free and doesn't take up any floor space.
Here's how it looks on brew day (Yes, my hopper is a cut up Better Bottle. I killed it by putting in too hot of water in it several years ago):
This is the mill without the hopper:
This is with the finger / neck-tie guard removed (you can see the Lovejoy couplers here):
This is the bottom where I have an additional piece of wood that fits snug inside the bucket so it doesn't shift (it also cuts down on the dust):
When I'm done, it hangs on the garage wall between the rake and push broom:
