Baskets... not just for picnics

In preparation for the arrival of the nairn, we have been trying to figure out how best to rearrange our bedroom so Nairn doesn't has to sleep in the laundry basket. The solution... Cameron is going to build shelves, so we can get rid of the dresser and have more space. That means I get to find baskets to replace the drawers, which means organization. That's a word I love. However, as I have perused many a site trying to find the perfect baskets for this kind of project, I find myself disappointed with my options, not to mention the prices of said baskets. Perhaps a combination of canvas and wicker baskets will ease the strain on the wallet and create a look of artistic diversity. Here are some of the favorites...







If anyone has any brilliant or secret ideas about where to find good storage baskets, please weigh in. Or if you have a completely different brilliant idea, I am open to hearing it. Polls are open.

I know you don't like Ikea...but they have really great boxes for really cheap.

I like the baskets that are foldable, that means fabric and a metal frame. They take up no room when you're not using them. Of course you can't judge my organizational skill, but baskets are great for getting things out of the way, good luck finding the perfect ones and ikea does have tons of all kinds of baskets.
