I found this cool idea on an old Sunset Magazine Website. Or perhaps it is new, but I just saw it recently. These folks made a mud room in their remodeled house in AK, and put up old fish steamer baskets for shelves! I have done this with wicker baskets, tins, wooden Coke Delivery boxes, and such. But this was really nice and you can even hang things like coats from hooks on the handles!!
I have used a tea cup set in my kitchen. I super glued the cup to the saucer, and you can set something small inside the cup and hang a pretty antique apron from the handle. I glued some bittersweet twigs and flowers to the saucer and hung it all with a plate hanger.
Turned out neat.
I am not sure why the photo of theirs didn't get included, but I don't think I saved the photo. I will add one from a website so you can see what they look like, and can imagine them on a wall. The ones the folks used had almost 90 degree angles, and the handles were upright and not out so much, so things would sit nicely.
