Galvanized Steel Bin Organizer

This galvanized steel bin was a great garage sale find.

After giving it a good scrubbing I wanted to give it a new life.

It was great as it was but I wanted to bring it into the kitchen and use it during family parties. 

I started by adding painted wooden knobs to the bottom. 

I drilled holes through the steel and screwed them on from the top.

I put a decorative liner inside to hide the screws and to give the bin a cleaner look.

Now this vintage bin doesn't look like it should be holding hardware anymore...

it is now a unique place to hold plates and silverware.

This bin would also be great used to hold fruits and vegetables in the kitchen too.
