Pantry Baskets!

 I think I am down to the last item (a rug) on my mission to put the finishing touches on my pantry.
Last week I was able to find a set of metal baskets that fit perfectly under the bottom shelves.
I had been looking for some just like these online, but they were either the wrong dimensions or really expensive.
 I came across these diamonds in the rough while shopping at Fred Meyer.
I found them in the back of the store, next to the automotive section and Rubbermaid storage bins.
They happened to have them on clearance.
Then they were marked down another 40%!
Probably because they were ugly.
But, I saw their potential.
Here is the basket as it came from the store.
 With this "sweet" little apple pie metal bottle cap attached to the front. (barf)

We easily removed the bottle cap by clipping the wires holding it on to the side.
Here is the finished product.
Rustic little metal bins that I got for a song!
