Do you have a deep shelf or storage bin that you just can’t keep organized? In this diy wicker basket drawer tutorial I am going to show you how to make a drawer using a simple square basket.
The nightstand shown above is the nightstand I had in my bedroom growing up. We just keep painting it and using it because I love the simple design, however I did not like the deep shelf. Books would fall back in there and it was a hard to keep it organized.
I found a square wicker basket that fit perfectly. The problem was pulling the basket out of the shelf. So I simply added a cute crystal handle.
I remembered these cute antique knobs that I have been saving for just a project like this.
You can find them at most hardware stores, specialty shops, and home decor shops. Amazon also have a cute set that would work perfectly. Ikea ( I love Ikea) have several storage bins that would be so cute with wicker baskets that have cute handles on them.
Here is what you do
- Cut a piece of thin wafer board. Approximately 4 x 5 inches. Depending on the size of your basket.
- Drill a hole in the center so the knob can go through. (This anchors the knob so it won’t pull through the wicker).
- Take the bolt out of the knob and stick it through the wicker and the board, then screw the knob on.
BAM! Simple as that.
