Whitewashed Wood Bins
A basic box, no frills
This is a fine box to store clothes in or knicknacks. I got mine on sale because there was a small crack on the bottom, though the box wasn't broken and still held together well.

Perfect for my kitchen
I needed some clean-but-opaque containers ot help corral things on my kitchen counter, but open on top, because apparently I never mastered that "object permanence" thing. These are great- they're simple & neutral, so they fit with any decor, and don't add to my already nutty kitchen's visual chaos. The whitewashed look is nice, and they're a good size. I got the XS for candy & things we shouldn't be eating, and the S for the huge amount of pet treats we have. Neither bin is too big for the space, yet they hold a lot, and I like that the sides are higher than some other bins. Not being a basket, they wipe clean a LOT easier, and present a cleaner look. I may order the larger sizes to help tame other parts of the house too... :)

Great at hiding our desserts.
So I wanted a box in the pantry to hide our desserts, and it's working. By putting cookies and chocolate in there, it actually means that you have to go looking for the snacks. Not 100% successful, of course, but that's not because of the box--that's our own poor self-control. :)

These boxes are amazing. Totally chic and modern but timeless. These boxes will look great no matter what style you're going for. The size is prefect too as they can hide numerous odds and ends but are also VERY pretty to look at. I stored mine behind closed doors in a pantry closet but love opening up the closet to find what I need. One of my favorite things is showing my closet to friends.

These are great boxes for visible storage.
I agree with others that they have a semi-finished look and you really have to dig through stock to make sure you get matched, fully finished boxes. I used the teeny ones for office supply storage and the large boxes to store diapers and wipes under the changing table.
There's definitely not anything comparable on the market...believe, I've looked!

I ordered 2 of these. They were the right size but one arrived broken in several places. Outer box was too large. The paint on the boxer looks like they stopped after a weak primer. I think they forgot to paint before sending. I wouldn't recommend

not the same
just received shipment of 'whitewashed' boxes. Container store must have changed manufacturers because these look and feel NOTHING like the pretty, smooth, lightweight bins I bought from them before.
ugly putty color, no woodgrain, not finished(sanded) very well.
Disappointed and wish I could get more of the original.
I am going to return and order the brown ones and hope they haven't changed as well.

whitewashed bin-lovin it
I use these for Everything in my bathroom. Functional and not a plastic eyesore. Thanks TCS!

Nice good quality, good looking box
We wanted a simple good looking wood box to put desk papers into while we are sorting, etc. It's a nice finish, light weight and feels well-made.

Kitchen Table Mess Savior
Three of these ("his and her" plus "other" medium-size) bins adorn a console table in our living room where they beautifully and dutifully serve as a short- and long-term lightweight landing spot for all manner of mail and important papers that may or may not make their way to a nearby file caddy for organizing. As a result, our kitchen table has been spared mayhem and my husband and I have one "go-to" spot for finding that necessary item--even at the last minute! Ideally, we go through them weekly in order to file everything, but find we do so only when we're struggling to find what we need in these!

The bins are large and spacious. I am currently using them under my bathroom vanity, and they are great for storage. There was a little residue on them that had to be wiped off, but I would have cleaned them before use anyway. I have no complaints.

Even Better than Expected
We don't have a Container Store in Wisconsin, so I bought these sight-unseen. They are even better than I hoped. These are perfect for storing DVDs and games. They fit in my shelving unit because they are not too tall. They are sturdy and unobtrusive. They blend well with my decor, but would go with just about any style of room because of the whitewashed wood. I highly recommend!

Sturdy and attractive
I purchased these to hold books which I had on shelves open on all 4 sides. The books fell over frequently. I am using the bin with the opening on the top. Now I store more books in the same amount of space without the books tipping over. I'm sure others will find that they will meet many storage needs. I'm satisfied with my purchase.

love these- look much more expensive than they are
The finish is beautiful and smooth. Lightweight and great for organizing just about anything. Fit file folders and my in tray.
I want 100 of them!

Created a sort of custom bookshelf by stacking these wood bins. Have had them over 8 months, still in perfect condition. Holds quite a bit of weight.

These are so attractive. I have 2 sets & the storage room is great. Make a great gift.

Good construction, and nice finish. Will use at office or home. Purchased for office metal desk unit, and they don't slide out like I need them too, so I'll find another purpose for these.

Classy storage solution
I have a big shelving unit (metal frame with wood shelving) in my pantry and I just couldn't see putting clunky plastic bins on it to organize my food and other products. So I went searching for something made out of wood that would complement my shelf. These bins are wonderful. They look so nice and I have everything organized now. I can quickly tell what I am out of and I can also control overbuying of certain things. It has not only helped to organize my shelves but I don't look like a hoarder now. Plastic bins are fine for a closet or a bedroom or something but my pantry is in full view if people visit and I think these wooden bins look so nice.

Perfect for what I wanted!
The small whitewashed wood bin is perfect to stand catalogs & magazines, front to back, and fit under a small side table. It doesn't
draw attention to itself and blends in while keeping these items
handy by my easy chair.

Great decorative storage bin
I have a lot of white and off white in my living room, and was having a toy storage problem, especially with all the new toys from Christmas. I decided to purchase this bin and keep it on the floor next to my fireplace. It looks nice in the room, and is the perfect place for my children's toys when they are not playing. They are also much better about picking up since we've purchased this. A great buy, and nice quality for the money. My only complaint is that is is not quite as white as it looked online, a little more grey than I expected.

Excellent Open Bin
Great, sturdy, natural material. Would definitely buy these again. The small size is perfect for DVDs, CDs, small kids toy pieces, toiletries, etc.
