I've finally solved the problem of where to store rolls of wrapping paper. I spied this wire bin a month ago at Le Forge but at $95 thought it was too expensive so didn't buy it.
I knew it was right, though, and I'd regret not getting it. So I did. Very happy I am too. Particularly as I saw it again at Orson & Blake in Woollahra last week for twice the price.
Now I tell myself I scored a bargain.
At 53cm high, it holds a lot so I reckon if I ever get a dedicated wrapping room a la Candy Spelling I can use it as a bedroom laundry basket, wood basket, even a lamp shade if I could bear to cut the bottom out of it.
Would make a fantastic industrial-style lampshade, actually, and we have high ceilings so it would fit. And the electrical fittings to make it happen. Oh dear, what to do...
