Great way to organize your towels, not only in the bathroom but also in your linen cabinets. You can buy baskets that are decorated already. I like this way of organizing because it reminds me the old days. This is how my mo fixes our towels.

I love to see ideas like this, because I always try to find DIY before buying what I need, if possible. I love the versatility of this, you can change the size and the color, and you can use it for so many different items to store inside. I can see one of these in each of my rooms. I just love this idea. Thank you so much for sharing this.

This is awesome- wish I had seen this earlier. We are using this for a debutante ball. The florist is charging megabucks. Will be a DIY project for the next event.
