Industrial Wire Basket

2 Materials
30 Minutes

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!
