Tin and Basket Shelves

Today I'm sharing a fun how-to for turning thrifted tins and baskets into one-of-a-kind shelves for any room. Like many of my projects, this one came up out of necessity. I decided I wanted some shelves to display little trinkets in the girls' room, but gave myself the challenge of reusing something. When I thought of using old metal tins from the thrift store, I rushed off to find the perfect pieces--and fell in love with the basket while I was there, too.

Old cookie tins are something I'm always on the hunt for (they're perfect for storing odds and ends), and I just happened across this red basket in the Christmas aisle at my local Goodwill.

I painted the insides of the tins before hanging them, and then just used a drill and some screws to add them all to the wall.  The basket proved a little tricky at first, but I eventually got longer screws and it all worked out in the end.

The bust was a thrifted find, too.

Touch up the screws with some paint, add some treasures, and you've got some fancy thrifty shelves. Or pop the lids back on for a fun display. I could probably go crazy and fill a whole wall up this way.
