When I created my little office nook off the kitchen, I wanted some way to corral paperwork and sort mail so it wouldn't end up all over the kitchen counters. I pictured a set of industrial-looking wire baskets that I could mount against the wall, but it was hard to find anything slimline enough for this purpose - and the ones I did find were so expensive! So, I decided to make my own.
I found these wire cleaning caddies for $5 from K-mart. Only problem? They looked... well, like cleaning caddies.
After a quick spray-paint in matte black, however, they looked a whole lot more classy!
