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…

    Where did you get the drawers that are under the kitchen sink?

      Hey Judy! We actually used that photo as inspiration for our project. We've seen those baskets on Amazon before. I'm sure you can purchase them and then spray paint them whichever color you prefer!

    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
