I lov baskets and you can always find them at a good price at the thrift stores. Sure they look a little beat up but now there is a way to fix that. I also use baskets and line them for my knitting and crocheting supplies. This is great idea. Thank you.

I never thought of using stain on a basket to create the look I wanted. This idea is so neat, but I can see where the wicker would soak up a lot of stain with this project. I think that this is something I would want to use, but I am leaning toward metal and using metal paint.

Great idea! So many times you find the right size, but the wrong color, somthismwoilso a great solution! For kids, I could see adding a ribbon or a toy chain and attach a name tag for each child! Or a label tag to identify contents if you used several in an office, pantry or laundry room! The dark stain is nice because it goes with any decor, and, for some busy families, won't show the dirt, especially if used in a mud room!

This is absolutely adorable! I love storage bins (and all things organization)!

I think this looks soooo nice! I love the stained wood look, and these bins are my life savers. I'm excited to try this out!
