Vegetable Fruit Bin
Vegetable Fruit Bin from Wire Planters and Baskets
A few posts back I shared the story on how I acquired some hanging wire baskets and stands. You can see and read about it Here. Today I will be sharing how I made a vegetable fruit bin repurposed from wire planters and hanging baskets for the kitchen.
How to Create a Vegetable/Fruit bin From Hanging Baskets and Plant Stands
While shopping and trying to find the best price for you I found these 10″ Sphagnum Moss Hanging Basket with Wire Hanger which now that I think about it makes for a great idea, so your small fruits/veggies don’t fall through. If you do have your own wire baskets you could always add these Basket Liner Coco Hanging Basket Liners
I made my own chalk paint with some oops paint and Plaster of Paris
I wanted to keep it rustic!
As you can see in this picture some of the plastic coating still remains on the the plant stand and wire baskets. I left it on and painted right over it with the chalk paint and added a few more colors to bring it to the look I wanted to achieve.
When it was completely dried, I removed the plastic, which exposed the rusted out parts I wanted to show and then applied a glaze and lightly sanded it.
the colors came out just the way I wanted them to match the kitchen
How to Assemble Vegetable Fruit Bin
Taking one of the stands place basket place on top, take your second stand and place legs in between the basket and interlock in the loops of the top part of the first stand, add second basket on top. You can have tilt like I have it here in the picture or you can just set it straight. If you tilt it the metal loop will hold it in place.
I am looking for some kind of plate/bowl or something to put on the shelves beneath the baskets, just not sure what yet.

I mentioned I above I did some shopping for you, while shopping I found these 3 tiered plant stands, if you have a larger kitchen these would would look great by adding the hanging baskets to the tops, with the liners and say hang someFoodservice Double Sided Fancy Rectangle Chalkboard, Mini, Set of 12 labeling the fruits and vegetables…What do you think?
