This basket was 75% off, baby!
Only problem is, it’s for a plant.
I don’t want a basket for a tree. I want a basket for my home for toys and junk and magazines.
But all those weren’t 75% off.
So I had a brazilliant idea. Buy this one for less than four bucks and just cut the plastic out.
It was waaaay easier than I assumed it would be. I just pulled up all the plastic first.
And then discovered that it was just lightly stitched into the wicker.
Niiiice. I just snipped the thread, and out it came.
You can’t even tell that it use to have a liner in it. And another awesome thing – the plastic is a huge square piece that will be great for doing messy crafts on.
Now I just need to figure out where to put it. Maybe here by the fireplace. Maybe next to the entertainment center. Not sure yet.
I also need to hunt down some junk to fill it with. “Kids? Where are your toys? I need you to mess up the living room for me so I have something to stuff in my new basket!”
Garden Ridge rocks!
