Casier Métallique ~ Wire Basket

I stopped in at Marshall's a few days ago to see if I could find some new yoga pants, well I didn't find any pants, although I found a great new top to wear to the gym and this wonderful basket. It was sitting with all of the other sales items, a steal at only $7.00 and I scooped it up immediately.



It is such a great shape and a very practical size with two sturdy wooden handles for carrying. There are so many ways that I will be able to use it: as a tray to carry things outside to deck for for meal times...




...or how about popping in some little pots of herbs.




oh! and a perfect place to put some African Violets; they are so pretty!




But although I thought of these ideas and quite a few more as well, for right now ~




I am using it on my desk to store papers and my everyday file folders!



I just love things that have mulitple purposes. How about you?

  3. I chuckle at this because I always tell people I train (in private homes) to never trust handles on a tray--they're the first things to give way. So, be careful, but I love your resourcefulness.

  10. That basket looks great in your home.
    I love wire baskets more than the other variety because they don't collect as much dust.

  25. It's a beautiful basket - your Marshalls must be a better one than the one we have here. I like all the different purposes you found for the basket and the way you took the pictures - very inspiring and beautiful. The fabric in the first two pictures is lovely!
