Santa brought lots of fabric and notions this year and we wanted to come up with  a “work in progress” wall where things were put away but still readily available.
We were pretty set on using baskets but wanted a unique way to hang them...
We created neat little hooks using faucet knobs & wood spools.
 
We chose to use new baskets because they aren’t overly heavy and
are nice and clean for the fabric and thread to sit in.
Pieces and parts...
Toggle bolts are a great choice as they work well with drywall and can stand the fairly light weight.
We went with six baskets - three small and three large and chose matching faucet knobs.
Here it is all done with every basket already filled.

It would be a great way to use those little baskets that bubble bath and lotion sets come in. Who doesn't have a bunch of those laying around after the holidays?! Now I'm inspired!
