Basket Storage

Good Morning!
I am so happy to be up and about this morning. Eager to embrace the work of the day!
Do you remember when I posted about taking out the dishwasher?
I wanted the space and wanted to save on our water and power output?
I also wanted to have memories with my children the way I remember... being alongside someone washing dishes and enjoying great conversation.
You can click on the links if you don't remember, *wink*
Anyhow, the space I wanted was for storage baskets. At the time, I wasn't able to install them and so I waited, just using them for grain bucket storage and whatnot.
Well, as we were remodeling our kitchen, the want was still there.
This is what I came up with.
I know the lighting is bad, but at 5 am, we can't ask for too much. :)
I searched over home improvement stores... looking through the kitchen organization aisles.
Nothing.
Everything was much smaller than what I wanted and needed.
So, I decided to broaden my search and see what was available in the closet organization.
Score!
Exactly what I was looking for! Perfect size and everything!
I buy in bulk, remember, so I need a place to store that bulk purchase and this fits the bill!
They slide out beautifully, even with the weight of all those veggies. I love things that come together in real life like they do in my head.

Making my kitchen and my life more organized... I feel like I should quote Martha here,
It's a good thing.

Have a beautiful day friends!

  1. What a fabulous idea! Our dishwasher died recently and we have decided not to replace it. I was trying to figure what to do with the hole once we take it out. Do you mind sharing what brand they are or where you found them? Thanks!....PS Your kitchen is looking lovely, Ive enjoyed your posts.

  2. Hi April!
    Sure thing, the baskets are from Lowes. They are Rubbermaid.
    Here's a link to the baskets themselves. Everything is included except for the tracks to mount to walls. They are separate. I hope that helps!

    Thanks for your kind words!
    Blessings!!
