Rolling Laundry Basket

Adding wheels to your laundry
basket not only saves your back...
it's adorable!


My latest obsession is fixing up my laundry room.

 I found these great wire baskets at Marshall's...
they had giant laundry basket written all over them!


What I didn't count on was that filled with laundry,
this "giant" laundry basket weighs a ton!

Yesterday on a trip to Ikea I found a
and an idea came to me right there in
the middle of Ikea with my mother!


By drilling a hole above each wheel...


I was able to slip a wire through the hole and around the 
base of the wire basket.


The perfect solution for heavy laundry...


and Industrial chic too!

  1. Ingenious! I saw these cute baskets at Marshall's and never thought about using them as laundry baskets. I am always on the look out for baskets to use that aren't the regular plastic ones. Thanks for sharing!
