Storage find of the century, my friends!
I was walking through the end-of-season clearance section of the Walmart garden center and look what I found!
Now, they’re actually meant to be used as planters that you can empty and store flat during the Winter, but don’t tell Chris’ T-shirts that!
I got them on clearance for $2 each. You can’t beat that price!
I sewed on these little metal conduit pieces for handles. They’re the same ones I used when I made my Cereal Box Magazine Organizers.
The bins are soft-sided, so they look better full, but they have a plasicky coating on the inside, so that helps give the burlap a little extra weight.
As good as they look sitting in front of that brick wall, they actually live in these little cubbies for now, at least until we get our built-ins put up along this wall. So yeah, for the next 12 years or so, they’ll stay like this.
If you’re in the market for some big bins or baskets, check your garden center to see if they carry something like this. You might just score an after-season deal like I did!
