Another idea to corral lots of odds and ends is from kcli and can also be found at Instructables.
I love this idea! Look at all those containers being reused!
Can't you just see this with smart looking labels
and maybe a little Mod Podge action?
Finally, you really need to go see Apartment Therapy's Inspiration: Vintage Storage. That's where I found this.
These are apple crates available from Baileys Home and Garden
You should browse around there too!
Lots of simple, lovely stuff.
It's not clear if they deliver to the US.
Time to link up!
