Yep made another trip to the dollar store. Saw them. Wanted them. Got them. Yep- all for a dollar. Now to zest!!
( I went to the 99 cents store -not dollar tree, however they may have them too!)
Remember that I have a bit of the industrial vibes with my shelves? (see link here) I thought it seemed fitting to introduce these metal wire baskets into the scene as well. But the white just wasn’t cutting it so I grabbed some spray paint to make them look more like the oh so trendy metal ones we see everywhere…



But the white just wasn’t cutting it so I grabbed some spray paint to make them look more like the oh so trendy metal ones we see everywhere…but first let me show you some inspiration of what I am hoping to achieve with my finds….



like here…love the organization!



and here…you can add some cute labels



and here…love the juxtaposition of wood and metal



You get the point...THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!


Even used as a centerpiece here!




And even more organization...LOVE!



And now to spray paint my treasures and organize my own home….



Nothing a can of good old Rustoleum hammered spray paint can’t fix….


I put these basket everywhere around my home. You can use them as kitchen storage, bathroom storage, and even decor!



Holding my remotes on my ottoman!




And there you have it!! A bit more organization to mi casa- and cute to boot!

xo,

Sam

    Love the ideas. However, I have a question: Do/will they rust? I was thinking of something similar to put near the kitchen sink to store everyday cleaning sponge/brush/dish soap. However, due to the moisture and everyday cleaning/water usage of products in it, I'm afraid it will rust and leave rust stains everywhere. Any idea if this works? Thanks.

      since the spray paint is rustoleum the coating should prevent! xo
