Vintage Gym Locker Baskets

  1. Tara Dillard says:

    Junior High, ugh, waiting with a gaggle of partially clothed girls to be handed our wire basket full of stinky clothes……….

    In hindsight realizing our professional/excellent gym teacher was a lesbian (forbidden knowledge then, no big deal now) and those baskets are vintage decor.

    Hmm, I would use a vintage wire locker basket in my garden.

    I don't have any vintage gym baskets, but a few vintage wire hand-held shopping baskets with the double handles. I love them.

    I love how this looks Camilla! We never had these…I can't even remember what our locker room looked like..and it wasn't that long ago for me lol

  6. Mrs. Chic says:

    I've been on the lookout for them too! I look into the sources you mentioned

    I found a vintage bicycle basket over the weekend that I'm painting black…its ends up looking nice I'll use in our linen closet of not its going in the garage to corral laundry products.

    I dont think I asked where you got them, I think my comment was more like when are you going to give them to me? 🙂 xoxox

    We can't keep them in our shop when we can manage to find the vintage ones. They are going up in price.

    I just bought two wire locker baskets at an antique fair this past weekend! Love them and have a lot of ideas for more of then in the house. The two I bought store my kids shoes near the front door.

    I just saw your post on wire baskets. I just bought 10 for $4 apiece. Yaaah. I might get more. I plan to use them for guests to put towels, toiletries, etc when they use the bathroom since they will be sharing the space with other guests. Also, storage, whatever, they are so cool.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
