Turn Baskets Into Open Shelves

If you are looking for a novel method of open storage you can use baskets mounted on the wall in lieu of shelves.
When redesigning my guest bathroom I riginally I wanted to use little wooden crates on the wall as shelves, but I couldn't find any. Instead I found small sisal baskets for under $5 at a discount store. Using simple mounting brackets, I was able to secure them to wall well enough to support a fairly heavy load. Now I have little displays for jars of cotton swabs and soaps. Plus a place to store extra towels and other supplies.

    The links to the blog do not work. Cutting and pasting don't doesn't work. Going straight to the blog and searching for "tuning baskets into shelves" doesn't work, with or without the date of the post. Very frustrating!!!
