The Cost: P150 per basket

Turn your boxes into charming shadow boxes for your walls.

1. Drill screws into the walls.

2. Hang the boxes using saw tooth hangers (available at hardware stores) for a clean-looking installation.

RL Tip: If you plan on putting more weight on the baskets for displaying books and vases, use L-Brackets instead of tooth hangers for sturdier and more stable shadow boxes.
