Wall Storage Using Baskets and Crates!


Hanging crates on the wall creates extra storage with a rustic flare. The best place to look for these crates, in my opinion, is the flea market or any second hand shop (including Goodwill). When placed in retail stores, these crates can be $45+. 


Instead of using wooden crates you can also use wicker baskets. Hanging wicker baskets is quite easy and provides extra storage in small spaces.


Using a wire basket instead of a wicker basket or wooden crate allows more storage/display room for books and magazines. The wire baskets give a rustic look, but would also look great in a modern home. 

According to Itty Bitty’s foster mom she was given to a rescue by her owner and was in really bad shape. She was covered in urine, had sores all over her bottom and was incredibly underweight. They think she was kept in a crate most of the time and just wasn’t taken care of at all. She also had a really bad case of “happy tail” or a sore on the end from it banging on the bars of her crate. Even though her former owner neglected her she still wanted their love and attention.

I decided to put my sewing skills to good use so I made a bed and a matching “bumper” around the edge of the crate to protect her tail. Not that she will be doing much more than sleeping in here. She surely won’t be living in it like her last owner forced her to.
