Fruit baskets instead of peg baskets



I was looking for a space saving solution, and finally found the TORKIS basket for clothes pins for my purpose. I simply screw the towel rail BAREN on the LACK shelf and clipped the baskets at the rail. A little inscription on the baskets and: READY ;)

    Really like this– it’s cute. Been looking for an excuse to buy those but since I already had clothespins couldn’t come up with a reason. Just wondering, though– what are the dimensions on the containers. They’re not listed on the website.

    Ha Ha! This is a great idea! Amazing space solution for us living in apartments/condos etc! Love it!

    Thank you ;) The dimensions are Ø 17 cm, 9 cm high…

    How much weight can they hold if they’re really just made to store clothespins?

    I believe you meant DIGNITET rather than BAREN? At least from the photo, that’s how it seems.

  6. Sammy Sammy says:

    clarissa, it`s absolutely no problem for the weight of all kind of fruits or vegetables… it`s a solid vire inside.

    Mike Ross, yes, sorry! you are right, it`s DIGNITET on the photo. But in the meantime I changed it into BAREN because the two basic points were too tight and were bending into the middle (sorry for my english, my vocabulary for this subject is rare).
