    Red face Making a table ????

    I am trying to make a table with cubbies around it. I can find the cubbies but am having trouble finding the baskets to put in the spaces. I want woven baskets not the fabric ones. I have seen some on this site before and was hoping someone could help me find what I'm looking for.

    Can you look at a Ikea catalogue on line? They have a lot of organization options.

    Wal-Mart also carries woven baskets but not sure they are deep enough for what you want. but check their web site and look at the measurements

    I have seen woven baskets at Walmart, Meijer. Even Lowes or Menards may have them.

    I don't know if the Dollar General Store is a local or national chain but I have seen them there.

    Try "World Market", I believe they are a national chain and are pretty reasonable. Have seen things like that in there. Good luck shopping.

    Depends on the size of the cubbies you are working with and how much space you are willing to give up in those cubbies. The ones in the cutting/craft table I made from Ikea Expedits are 13 x 13 x 15", so I didn't want ones that were 11" square - which I found just about everywhere, lol.

    Here is a link to my table: http://www.quiltingboard.com/mission...e-t212058.html

    The storage bins are ones that I ordered from Amazon. They are reasonably priced and surprisingly sturdy. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The plastic multi-level storage containers are actually ornament boxes, I ordered them online, too.

    The wicker baskets that you can see in the front shot are from Michael's, and are ones that I had but will replace. Like the design, but as you can see, they are much too short - wasted space!

    Two weeks ago I got some nice woven ones that look to be about a cubic foot for only $5 at Aldi, but alas, it was a special buy and I don't know if they would still have any.

    Hobby Lobby's woven baskets are 40% off every so often. Keep an eye on their current sale papers and wait until they are on sale and check there.

    Try The Container Store or Target.com. Target.com has a lot of storage/organization stuff online that isn't available in the store. I got bins for my armoire there for cheap as they were discontinuing the pattern.

    If you have a Michael's Craft store near you they have a great selection and you can use coupons from from other craft stores. Go online and look for the coupons, many of the stores are running 40% and 50% off.

    What about wire baskets? You can see through them and see the fabric in them? That's what I'm looking for.

    Thank you all for your help. I found some on line at Target. I went to there store today and they had the 15 just like I wanted.A little bit costly but they will look so nice. I was really surprised they had that many. I was just going to look and then order online but they had enough for me now so tonight I'm a very happy sewing and filling my baskets. Thanks again for all your suggestion.
