Hanging Baskets

Martha Stewart Living, October 1995

Baskets designed to hold fishermen's tackle or to hook onto a bicycle's handlebars come ready-made with holes in the back. Hung on a kitchen wall with cup hooks, or on a Peg-Board, they make great receptacles for unwieldy kitchen tools or fruits and vegetables that don't require refrigeration.

    I have a peg board in the pantry to hang cooking utensils, strainers, measuring cups, anything with a [filtered word] in the handle. It is great!

    how do you hang the pegboard so it holds that much weight?

    This also works to keep those flashlights ready and available in a central location.

    I think I'd go for metal (magnetic) pegboard ~ it is sturdier, and I'd be able to stick my magnetic spice containers somewhere other than the fridge door. Neat idea!

    This also works in my sewing room for those things that are hard to hang and my walls are covered with peg board already!
    Thanks

    I agree not very good for the kitchen. Here in Washington the weather is so mild and sometimes just downright cold I store all my fruits and veggies that don't need to be in the fridge in the garage. Not only is the temperature cooler but for me it's the darkest place to store these things since I don't have a basement. This adds to the life of my produce. These baskets worked great and look fun.

    I love the idea too, and i found it can do so much with the idea even to use it somewhere else in the house with some little change.

    I love this idea! I have a laundry room right off the kitchen and need to have space to store the brooms, dustpans, apples, potatoes, onions and BBQ tools. Peg board is very inexpensive and you can paint it to match the decor!!

    I,too, think this would probably not be a good idea in the kitchen.too many nooks and crannies to clean, remember how the exhaust hood can get?

    oopps! Guess I need to write less - anyway the bathroom idea is great and thank you all for sourcing the products!!

  • vrrusa 28 Jul, 2008

    I too love all of your comments! I am in Ca and the only time I have seen the lovely fishing baskets is when I visited the east coast. Although I love the look, I would never put baskets or peg board in the kitchen. The surface's are too rough and hard to clean

  • terivanhecke 28 Jul, 2008

    Know what? I love reading the comments on these ideas as much as what Martha has to say! You readers are a wealth of ideas and suggestions! When I first saw this I didn't think much of it, but after reading the comments I can't wait to use these in my bathroom and/or laundry room! Thanx everybody!

    How do you hang the baskets in the kitchen so that they won't tip? Great idea in the garage with peg board although I wouldn't use peg board n the kitchen.

  • Cyndeebee 28 Jul, 2008

    When you're looking for baskets, don't forget to check out a few second-hand stores and yard sales. One of my best resources for craft supplies...

  • tdrosdak 28 Jul, 2008

    I have used this idea for years in my bathroom...pretty baskets with handles and flat backs hold my brushes, hair bands and hair clips within reach when I'm getting ready in the morning!

  • NancyMcManus 28 Jul, 2008

    I LOVE this idea. Makes great use of vertical space!

  • seahorse73 28 Jul, 2008

    What a great idea, can use all over, kitchen, bathrooms, garage! I LOVE it!

    Thanks Martha and Crew!~

  • nator 28 Jul, 2008

    Great idea, I think I will use it in the changing room of my cabana for sunscreen, goggles, swimmies and magazines etc.......Thanks for the wonderful idea!

    I think this is an eco-friendly idea... the natural wicker decomposes FASTER than plastic bins! Bravo Martha Crew~!

    peg board in the kitchen. It could work!

  • luvnitpink 28 Jul, 2008

    I have found the children's bicycle basket at Magic Cabin. The fisherman's basket can be found at any sporting goods shop. I never thought about attaching to the wall but I love it, I am thinking about the utility room where everyting piles at the back door - sunscreen, baseball gloves, balls, etc.

    Where can I find these baskets? I cut this page out of an old magazine but did not save he "Resouces" page. These are perfect for the space I have.

  • manuelaosorio 9 Apr, 2008
