I’m all about vintage items and I’m also big into organization. It’s a total win if I can combine both of those loves!┬áSo when I saw this idea, I had to make one for myself. You can make one as well with my step by step photo tutorial.bread pan organizer with fruit | Barb Ann Designs |

Find yourself a pair of matching bread pans at a garage sale, thrift store, or even from your own cabinets. You also need an old fashioned potato masher.

The other items you’ll need are a drill to make some holes, wire, and wire cutters.

If you don’t have a drill you can punch the holes with a hammer and a large nail.

Place two holes in each bread pan on only one side, spaced as shown. Cut yourself two pieces of medium gage wire. Think about it being strong enough to hold the pans together when choosing.

Place the masher between the pans and wire them together.

Twist the wire together and be sure to clamp the pointed parts downward.

Here’s how the bottom of your bread pan organizer should look.

Now comes the fun part! You can decide  multiple ways to use this new little organizing beauty! Use it for produce on the kitchen counter as I showed in the beginning of this post. This organizer would also be great for cosmetics.

It’s a handy thing to carry out to the backyard grill.
