Q: I was wondering if anyone could suggest a cheaper alternative for these steel bins. They're perfect for my son's room theme (1960s Mad Men travel), but since I am no longer working they are really, really out of my price range :(

Editor: Many readers are far better versed in DIY than I but to me it seems as simple as finding metal bins you like and painting them, perhaps using a small stencil or stamp. Readers, what are your thoughts? Any good sources for similar bins?
