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 rolling plant stand 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!

See how I made a liner for a basket just like this!
