You can also use this basket as a place for bathroom or kitchen towels as well. This DIY storage idea will help you stay organized and less cluttered.

Love this idea and especially the colors used, which just screams summer and fun! This would be a nice and practical,way to tote beach towels to the beach, or have in plain site at a beach house or when staying at a resort if you drive there, to have all e towels handy and in one spot. This would make a great gift for a summer birthday, wedding or anniversary, or as a Bon voyage gift... You could even add the gift recipient's name next to the beach towel label. Great and fun project idea!

This is such a cute idea, and it's exactly what I need to make this summer. What a neat project! Can't wait to start it.

Wow! I'd never thought of painting a canvas bin. This would be sooo cute done in a nautical theme--navy blue and burgundy-- with anchors and maybe even rope on the handles. The more things I can use like this to stay organized the better! These could be used in multiple rooms of the home and for a myriad of things---towels, toys, books, etc.
