Basket Shelf

A lot of times when I am doing my boutiques, I have women say to me, "I just don't have good ideas." And, "How would I use that as a decoration in my house?"

So the other day, I ran across some old metal baskets. And I know that when you normally see a basket, you think of it holding something, etc. Well when I saw these baskets, I thought of how cool it would look above my front door holding decorations.

So, I asked my husband to hang up the basket over the door. He just used two nails and hung it up. It was so easy.
Next, I got out my ladder and started to decorate. First, I cut some cream fabric for the bottom. Then I rolled up some coordinating fabric and stacked them on top of each other. Then, I put an old short glass pitcher in the basket, I filled it with red berry sprigs. Then I found a chipboard "W" and covered it in jute. That was it, so easy. And, I LOVE it!

I always try to think outside of the box when decorating...it's fun!
By the way, I will have four of these awesome baskets for sale at my upcoming boutique!


  1. How about I just buy all those baskets.. like today! I need to hire you to come to my house and decorate. I am hopeless! Love all this fun stuff! Great ideas!

  2. Hmmmm and I thought I was creative by using mine to store rags....NOT.
