DIY Rolling Organizer Basket for Throws

February 14, 2016 12 By EngineerMommy

During the Winter, I have a thing for throws! I have a few throws in every room. There’s nothing better than cuddling up on the sofa with a nice, comfy throw and watching my favorite show (hello, Bravo!) or reading my favorite magazine (Real Simple)! However, sometimes the throws can get unruly and I need to corral them together!

So I set out to design something that would roll so I can easily move it around the house. I picked up everything for this project very affordably! So this project didn’t cost that much at all!

The large white wire basket was picked up from Ikea for only $2! What a bargain!

I didn’t like the white color, so I decided to spray paint it with an Oil Rubbed Bronze color!

Two coats later, this is what it looked like! Much better…

I got a set of 4 small caster wheels from the home improvement store. I simply attached them to the bottom of the basket with some construction adhesive.

I attached a small burlap ribbon, because well, burlap makes me happy and has a wonderfully rustic feel. I also made a little sign using a piece of wood and some scrapbook stickers!

It has totally made our space so much more clean and organized! I have a dedicated spot for all my throws now! Also, this rolling basket would be perfect for kids’ books, toys, pillows,… anything that needs an organizational boost!
