A Quick Basket Fix

The renovation of half our house is long over, but a few lingering "to-do"s remain. For instance, we lost some storage when we replaced the ugly, cabinet-style guest-bathroom sink with a handsome pedestal sink. I needed something to hold extra rolls of toilet paper, but with style:

I found this cute basket at Pier One. I loved the chicken-wire texture, the wooden handles, and the little label on the side just asking for a chalked-in word. It fit well in the space under the sink, too:

But the price--yowch! Surely I can do better than that?

I can. I found this beauty at Marshall's, for under $5:

It has an attractive wire pattern and the same style of cute label on the side:

For a fraction of the price. So, I invited it home.

It is very happy, doing its job and trading jokes with the tin-pail trashcan I found for less than $5 at Cost Plus World Market:

We're all feeling very smug.
