They’ll help you restore the pieces you find so that they look kitschy and fantastic in your home.
3. Numbered wicker toy storage
Perhaps the wicker baskets you have are a little bit bigger than what we showed you in the first idea, so you’re not sure hanging them on the wall is a good idea? Then check out how Knot All That I Seam combined their big wicker baskets with a cubby shelf to create great toy storage! They suggest keeping things organized and helping your kids out with toy cleaning by stenciling numbers on the side.
