Practical and functional burlap-tied metal basket

Metal baskets or, in fact, any other type of baskets, are very useful around the house. They are great for storage and can be used for towels, books, magazines, toys, supplies, even in the kitchen. They are all very practical but we’re only going to focus on the metal baskets, particularly the kind you see in the pictures.

This is a very common type of basket. It has a simple design and it’s easy to find. The burlap ribbon is a very cute embellishment that makes it seem more rustic and less industrial. The basket can also get a number or tag like in this case and it can be a simple and interesting way of organizing your items in case you need more than one basket. Another thing you can do to make the basket seem more chic is to paint it.

You can paint the basket white for a fresh look or you can choose a more vibrant color such as red, blue, yellow or green. It’s an idea that can be applied to any type of metal basket. It would be easier to use spray paint but feel free to make your own choice. The burlap ribbon is also just a starting point. You can use any other material you like or you can come up with something completely different. This was just to get you started.{found on commonground}.
