I am addicted to baskets
In fact, my thoughts are, if you can’t store it in a basket, you probably really don’t need it in the first place. 🙂
Baskets are just so versatile. And cute. And sophisticated. And orderly.
That’s what’s so nice about them, baskets come in so many shapes, sizes and styles; you can always find one to fit your need.
I’m always scurrying garage sales, thrift stores and craft shops to add to my collection. I also love to use them to make care packages. But that is a whole other post…
I appreciate interior decorator Judith Balis’ advice. She suggests that while you can vary the shapes and sizes of baskets in a room, it is best to stick to the same material that the baskets are made from. This cuts down on the visual clutter, she says.
So how are some ways you can use this massive hoard of wicker you have amassed? I’m glad you asked. I’ve gathered some photos around the web to inspire the decorator in you.
I really like what Jessica did here with adding a long basket for toilet paper. What an excellent way to save cabinet space and look attractive!
I have a small kitchen. So I’m always trying to find ways to maximize space. Isn’t this brilliant what Ashley did with her corners?! I can see our next DIY…:)
Another side basket! Change to wire and stick it in the kitchen. I’m really liking this thought. Thanks, Courtney!
Quick tip from LollyJane. And, yes. I do this a lot. You should too.
Another storage idea I love-put your shoes in baskets! (Because, right now, that’s about all my kids can handle in the organization level:)
And don’t forget using baskets outside! Stephanie rounded up a great collection of hanging flower baskets. Scrolling through these will have you driving to your local garden center pronto!
