DECORATING WITH BASKETS

Have you ever been thrifting and found something or several things that you just couldn't pass up because the price was so right even though you had no idea what you might do with said things?

I have a confession to make: I have.

Upon my last pass through the Salvation Army Thrift Store, one of the specials for the day was on baskets, all baskets. They were only fifty cents. I bought a few...



I've seen baskets used here and there on Instagram as wall decor, and I know they are a great way to add texture, a natural element, and character to a space. So I brought them all home for around $4. I'm working on my plan for them. :-)

In the mean time, I thought I would share a few ideas.

One of the biggest baskets I've ever seen used on a wall was at the Southern Living Idea House in Birmingham last year. You can take the tour here if you missed it. This entrance was designed by Ahsley Gilbreath.

They are the perfect and interesting alternative to pictures for a wall.

They would also be a good choice for an odd spot in a room that needs filling.

And don't count out that space over the mantle.

Baskets can also contribute beautifully to completing the space around the television that is often a mystery to decorate.

Really, they are the perfect addition to any vignette, and throw in a little blue and white... So good!!

How do you feel about baskets on the wall?

Almost the weekend!
