Remember these baskets I got for Christmas???
And this tool kit Joey got me right after Christmas???
Well, I started putting both to use the other day!
I brought the baskets into our Master Bedroom to see if there might be a spot to use either one of them in that room...
...and I concluded that my nightstand needed help. Joey built our nightstands, and I love the look of them. But with the bottom part being open, I haven't been exactly sure what do with the space. I had some random items - books, magazines, tissues etc - set in there since I like having them by my bed space. But lets be honest, it looks kind of messy.
And if you haven't guessed already, mess ain't my thing.
So, I began by removing all the items for a clean space...
...only to discover two things. First, the space wasn't that clean - it was kind of dusty/dirty way back there. Second, there was actually a screw popping out of the back corner where Joey had screwed the leg into the base.
Here's where my pink tool kit entered the picture! I used one of the mini, pink screwdrivers from the kit to screw it back together - it went down easy. And then I gave the space I nice cleaning.
Next, I put one of the baskets - the milk crate basket - into the stand. Perfect fit!
Then I was able to load the basket with the bedside items I use regularly, and it hid it all perfectly - with room to spare!
Nice improvement, eh?
I might just need to make a quick run to Target to buy a second basket just like it for Joey's nightstand!
And now to find use for the other basket. Hmmmm...
