beautiful--not super sturdy, sides too slanted
I purchased 7 of these for use in the bottom shelves of an expedit shelving unit. I selected these particular bins because I loved the crochet boxes in the same line and wanted a bin that would coordinate. These are beautiful bins. I ordered the lighter color, which is slightly darker than the ivory shade of the photo, but still very pretty. I do think that these are prettier than they are useful, though. The sides are too slanted to hold much except books or magazines, but the containers themselves are not suited to holding books because they aren't very sturdy. I kept them because they look nice, fit my space pretty well and they coordinate well with the crochet box, but I wish they were a little taller with straight sides and sturdier construction.

Crochet baskets rock!
I bought half a dozen of these baskets in the two sizes and the two colors, and they are great! We store our kids' toys in them. It makes cleanup easier, and I love that my family room suddenly looks a bit more grownup!
