Woman discovers brilliant $12 Kmart bathroom hack

Woman discovers brilliant $12 Kmart bathroom hack

If you’re tired of the clutter and disorganisation in your home, you’re not alone. A fellow Instagram user had decided she’d had enough and headed off to her local Kmart to see what she could find.

Instagram user Michelle whose account is @lookwhat_i_found had hit the motherlode when she discovered Kmart's wicker baskets for bicycles.

Michelle explained: “When I spotted the beautiful wicker bike baskets @kmartaus -$12, I just had to create something with them.

“The leather look buckle straps are perfect for attaching onto the Kmart bamboo ladder and really give the baskets a fabulous look!”

If this is the first time you’ve branched out into DIY, Michelle explains that the hack she’s discovered isn’t difficult to do.

“I just had to rearrange the straps by sliding them up higher to balance the baskets.”

She even goes as far as to explain what hole the buckles need to go in on the ladder.

“Also to get the baskets to sit properly I put the buckles towards the second last hole to hang a little lower so they sit on the rungs. They make great storage for towels or even for plants!”

Followers flooded her post with comments, with one saying, “Looks great, might try it for my bathroom”, whereas others were tagging their friends and saying that this would look great for their bathroom at home.

One commenter had other ideas for the baskets.

“Would be a lovely idea in kids nursery for blankets and soft toys”.

Where would you set this up in your home? Would you set it up in the laundry or see where it would look in other rooms? Are you tempted to try this out? Let us know in the comments.
