Pam blogs at diy Design Fanatic, where she claims that necessity is the mother of invention.  “I looked for at least 2 months for a basket for our daughter’s room. I looked at Marshall’s, HomeGoods, Ikea, TJ Maxx, Target, but didn’t have any luck. None of the baskets were the right size.”  One day, walking out of Trader Joe’s, she spotted an empty box that was the perfect size, and was desperate enough to bring it home!
