Seeing as you have landed on my site, there is good chance you love baskets just as much as I do. I’ve been especially obsessed with these three I bought from Crate and Barrel a little while ago…
They add so much texture and warmth to my bland white kitchen, and they allow me to make use of every possible bit of storage.
That being said, I couldn’t remember, and Shaun clearly had no idea, what was in them. We mostly use them for food we buy in bulk, but that’s about as much as I remembered. I knew I needed labels, but I wanted a very temporary solution that wouldn’t damage my baskets and that could come with me as we move and as our storage needs change.
I stopped by Staples (with my dog! Can you believe they actually let me bring her in?) and picked up these from the Martha Stewart Collection. (I am a tad worried about how much I love that collection. I know what it says about me…)
To make them work, I backed them with some plain white cardstock I already had, cropped them with my scrapbook trimmer, hole punched them and tied them with twine to my basket. Easy.
Max 5 minutes to make, and so effective!
Now I easily know where to find what I’m looking for and can change it up if I need to.
(Nothing like a picture to point out how awful your popcorn ceiling is.)
Paper, twine, chalk: free since I already had them at home
All in all, a nice and quick little project that adds function and charm to our mini-kitchen. What projects have you whipped up in a few minutes that make a big difference to your place?
