Diwa turns the IVAR storage system into a stylish and extra large laundry basket, well, more like a big capacity laundry bin.
I like how it lights up, though not such a good idea when full of dirty clothes.
Another thought I had about this large laundry basket would be to probably add another piece of plexiglass inside to divide the bin for whites and colours.
“I always wanted a good-looking large laundry basket. Something I wouldn’t mind having in my bedroom.”
On her super stylish large laundry basket
Diwa says, “I always wanted a good-looking large laundry basket. Something I wouldn’t mind having in my bedroom. I had some IVAR shelving at home and always thought it would make a great frame to build on.
A few slats of pine from Home Depot, some Plexiglass, hinges and floor lamps and voilà – an extra large laundry hamper. I cut a small opening into one of the shelves to serve as a door with hinges on one side.”
