Get Organized With This Easy and Inexpensive DIY Rolling Book Basket!

When I was redecorating my youngest son's room, I needed a solution to organize all of his books. I came across a wire basket on clearance for $10 and had a great idea to add castors to it and create a Rolling Book Basket that he could easily move out from under his nightstand shelf. This project was easy and cost under $30! You could use this basket for so much more than books too!

    Not only is this the bees knees, it's cute as a bug's ear. I don't know why but basket ideas are always so much fun.

    The basket Idea for books is great. I might make 2 or 3 and keep my magazines I've saved and look back through issues. One for French decorating, quilting and the last one for gardening.

      I have a basket like that and it's a little bit higher I use it for my lundery clothing .While I'm waching a movie in the leaving room I move my clean cloth in my basket to the leaving room and finish while waching the movie.
