"This brand is actually called French Country, which is my look," says Ireland, comparing two sizes of rustic metal crates with burlap linings. "I might re-line this in some of my delicious fabric, but there's nothing wrong with the way it is, especially for $9.99." The best bargains are multi-functional pieces, and her list of possible uses for this item is exhaustive. It could be used to store utensils or produce in the kitchen or on the table to serve bread.
"I can see using it in a country style bathroom for hand towels or hairbrushes, and it's also very good for office storage. They are so good looking you can keep them on open shelves or even use them as in and out boxes."
