You guys, wire baskets are EVERYWHERE! Seriously. Step into any store that sells home decor or crafting items and you’re bound to find a million wire baskets that you love. It makes sense because these fabulously utilitarian objects look just a little bit prettier with their interesting metal finishes and/or lovely liners. Plus, they work with just about any style of decor.
But you know what – left to their own devices, wire baskets will scratch the h-e-double-hockeysticks out of whatever surface you set them on. I’m talking mean, ugly scratches that will make you want to throw your once beloved wire baskets out the window. (Trust me, I know this from experience.) But luckily I figured out a SUPER SIMPLE SOLUTION to this problem, so I had to share my idea on how to prevent wire baskets from scratching your surfaces. (And no, it’s not those sticky furniture pad thingies, which will fall off within five seconds of application to a wire basket.)
