As most of you know, I have an un-ending love for galvanized metal. This is particularly true of galvanized metal baskets. I especially love those old gym locker baskets. By love, I mean, if I see one for sale, my soul cries out, “You can’t leave it behind. (As long as its a reasonable price.)” I had a few that were sitting on the bottom of my entry table, basically un-used except for decoration. So I took them, turned them on their sides, bolted them to the wall, and they became cookbook holders.
I heart them. And they were soooo easy to do. All we (ok, Grunt Labor) did was buy really big washers and put them on each side of the basket. (See below.) Make sure the washers are as big or bigger than the holes in the basket. One washer goes on the back of the basket and one on the corresponding front side. A smaller washer goes on top of the larger one in the front and a screw goes through it all. Easy peasy. We also used drywall anchors to make sure the baskets could hold plenty of weight.
Simple, galvanized storage. Ahhh……
