I Am A Basket Case

I have had this Ikea "Expedit" Bookcase for a couple of years. I have enjoyed using it to display various collectible items in my dining room. It's been fun, but the new me, the practical, organized me, wanted to change it up a bit.

So, for my birthday, I purchased 16 (with help from my friend Emily) baskets from Ikea. I love the new look and my kitchen is sadly lacking in cabinet space. So I will use the baskets to help store some of my kitchen linens, extra pasta and dry goods to help augment my kitchen storage.

So here are the before and after shots. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for what I could store in them?

Before: Cute and Fun!

After: Organized and useful but still pretty.
