    I love this idea and these baskets! Where did you find them? I’ve been looking and can’t find any this simple.

  2. craftyamy says:

    Hi Gini! I found some online – but I would check Home Depot or Lowe’s closer to summer. They are made for outdoor walls, if that helps.

    Please let us know what site you found them from- would love to do this in my son’s room for stuffed animals & blocks etc but I’ve looked thru tons of sites & no one has them!!

  6. cc says:

    I have looked and looked for baskets like this—-none at Home Depot or Lowes. Where else should I look?

  7. rachel says:

    I am also looking for these baskets and can’t find them. Please let me know where I can get them. Do they come in white?

  8. craftyamy says:

    Hi folks – if you can’t find them locally, I would search online. You can also try specialty gardening stores.

    How far out the wall do those toy organizers reach? My little one falls so much she would run into those. I keep things ” soft around her”.
