Hi.

Welcome to my blog/portfolio. Here I document many of my handmade pursuits. Hope you have a nice stay!

Three-tier basket storage tower.

Three-tier basket storage tower.

When I stumbled upon these cute baskets at my local dollar store, I stashed three into my cart without any hesitation and knew that whatever use I come up with for these, it would be awesome! I loved everything about these baskets: the size - not too big and not too small; they were metal - nice and sturdy and could store heavier items if need be; and the overall look - these could easily fit in an industrial, modern, rustic, even a shabby chic or country home! 

When I brought them home I didn't get to them right away... I shoved them aside from one spot to another for a good few months before I finally decided that I'd use them to make this storage tower  (alright! I admit it! I DO have project ADD!).

But, when I DID complete this project, I was more than satisfied with it! I built a support frame out of solid wood and installed the baskets inside the frame at an angle. The finish on the frame included a dark gray stain, a faint white wash, and a light distressing.

What's great about this unit is that it is pretty compact but still offers mega storage! The base measures approximately 12"x12" so it has a small footprint. You don't need much floor or counter space to keep this gem around! The three baskets are a decent size so many items will easily fit inside. Finally, this little unit is so versatile! Whether you need to organize some toys in a child's bedroom...
