Create Hanging Storage from Vintage Cake Tins

Country Home

We've had several questions from readers lately about stylish and functional storage for onions and garlic in the kitchen. So we were really taken with this small, easy project from Country Home: Transform vintage tube pans with a bit of paint and a chain!

This project is simple: You prime some vintage or inexpensive cake tins, then paint them and link them together with chains and a hook. Presto! A hanging set of baskets for fruit or vegetables.

We really like this little project, since it's neater than the usual hanging baskets, which let papery onion skins drift all over your countertop.

This is also a great way to get a little extra color in your kitchen: Imagine these tins spraypainted with bright yellow enamel, or turquoise blue color, like a robin's egg!
