Wire Basket Project-Part 2

Hi Everyone!

Here I am again, as promised. So what did I do with the made-over wire baskets?
They were the perfect size for my repurposed CD tower that I have in my new sewing space.
Now-a-days music can easily be bought and down loaded on-line so I think physical CDs are slowly becoming obsolete and so are CD towers...or are they?
Not if Hubby can help it :-) Using the tower for storage in my new sewing space was his idea.  WAGI Babe! Even though the cubbies are a bit small they still make for great storage spaces.
The above are vintage spice jars filled with my vintage button collection, both of which  I've had forever.
I love how the baskets turned out. I think they look great.
The cubbies are also the perfect size to hold some of my stationary.
Last three cubbies have these baskets, which are also thrift store finds. I do wish I would have found more wire baskets for the rest of the cubbies but three were all I found. But these wood strip baskets work well too...Hey, more storage, I'm not complaining...Hee, hee. hee. Maybe I should just give them a little makeover too...Any ideas?

So my new little sewing/craft space is coming along and I think it is in fair shape...I hope fair enough for showing at Karen's annual "Where Bloggers Create." I have wanted to join for so long but never had a space to share...not until now, Yay!!! Can't wait. Hope you'll stop by over at My Desert Cottage this Saturday, July 11th to visit others participating or maybe even participate yourself. See you there.

Great reuse of the cd stand. We have a box of cds around here that we never use. The storage towers we used to have are long gone. I still use cds in the car. And believe it or not, have never once downloaded music to anything. :) Have a great day. Tammy

Dearest Ana, your shelves and baskets look so pretty! And I can't wait to see your sweet carfting place :) Hugs to you!

I find it amazing that CD towers are becoming obsolete. the wire baskets look like they were made for the shelves. What a fun and useful project! LOVE this!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. It means a lot to me!

Hi Ana. The baskets turned out great and what a useful (and pretty) space to use them in. I might think about joining up for Where I create but I would have to do some housecleaning first!! Thanks for your kind comments to me and for the Chalk pen info. I will pick one up..Happy Thursday..Judy

Wow! I just love your creative use of the CD tower! It is great to be able to repurpose things, and your wire baskets are just lovely! Have fun creating, and I hope to see your post on your craft room this weekend :)

Good Morning,
What a clever Idea! well of course... you are so creative and saved the life of a CD holder.
I love it in the corner its the perfect spot for it and we always need more storage space, that's for sure. I love having a sewing room, may times my room can get a little messy with fabric and notions about while creating a quilt , so I can just close the door so no one can see my mess LOL .
Sending you love and hugs, I posted the other day. I think I'm ready now. Thank you for all your love, one day we will be having lunch together.

I love your wire baskets; perfect for your sewing room storage. The woven baskets are cute as well as the re-purposed spice jars! A fun project!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

What a perfect fit your wire baskets are, Ana! Only you can make storage look like a work of art!

Alessandra said...

You amazed me with the reuse of the cd tower. Great and clever idea! I'm looking forward to seeing your craft space.

I LOVE organized spaces and especially when they are stylish! Good job, Ana! Have a super day out there in SD! Anita

Lady Pamela said...

Your baskets look amazing, Ana. Now I wish I had kept my CD tower. It was a special one, too. Made to look like a very tall bird house. I can see it in my mind, all repainted in chalk paint. Maybe another one will turn up. Great ideas here.

Ana, this is amazing, it is so decorative and yet so very, very organized. Love it. Jo

Dearest Ana,
Lovely transformation and who would have thought of using spice jar bottles for vintage buttons. Very unique and I love that!
Wishing you a happy upcoming weekend.

I will be joining Karen Saturday as well! I think it will be fun! Love the little cabinet and the baskets are perfect. Maybe you will find another one or two here or there in your junking travels! Many blessings, Cindy

What a lovely view. It made me smile instantly when I saw the first picture - that's when I know something is pretty AWEsome.
This is! This qualifies as absolutely and utterly awesome.
I love each detail. I love your storage of vintage buttons... reminds me a Dear Uncle's Taylor's Workshop.
So I'm still smiling and want to return to the post.
Well done, Lovely Lady.

You have put that old CD stand to great use!. I love the mix of metal and wicker baskets, which are perfect for items that might go through the metal ones. You've created a smart area to keep supplies handy!!! Mickie

Marie-Anne said...

Dear Ana, what a lovely revamping of the old CD tower you have achieved!!!!!!!!! I love the colours of your sewing corner. The wire backets did fit perfectly and I also like the wicker baskets. As for the vintage buttons, they are so beautifully displayed in the old spice jars!!!!
Looking forward to seeing your sewing corner!!
Many hugs!!! I wish you a lovely weekend!

Ana, your CD tower reincarnation is absolutely perfect and I love it. It looks really attractive in that corner too. Kudos to hubby for the idea!

Art and Sand said...

I absolutely love what you have done with your CD tower and I love anything with wire baskets.

I will have to do a post on how I repurposed our CD tower. It is also in one of my creative spaces.

Such a great idea
Hope you are enjoying the weekend
