Where Oh Where Should My Basket Go?

Still working up the time and courage to touch the hutch with the paint brush.  I am going backwards a bit because I am trying to arrange the shelves before I have even painted.  I have too much stuff that needs to a hidden storage solution now that my cabinet doors are gone. 

I have ordered some wicker baskets that will be in Wednesday.  I am thinking of mixing up the wicker with some metal baskets.  I will have 4 metal and 4 wicker baskets. 

The metal baskets were found at Stein Mart.  They are green.


As you know I am a fan of green, however, Lisa at Fern Creek Cottage preferred the look of a true vintage locker basket and she painted hers.  You can see it here. 

I think mine will stay green.  I sewed some liners for them and held them in place with magnets on the inside

And I made some faux metal locker tags with paper, photoshop and my printer.

Some or all of the metal baskets might go into my hutch.

Or under my bench in the breakfast area.

Stay tuned to find out where my baskets go.sig
