Good morning my friends!
I have had a three tier basket for some time now, and it has been all over my house by now. I just can’t decide were I like them best.
They started their life in my house in the kitchen:
I really liked the opportunity to show off some pretty things. But although it looked really nice, my kitchen is basically too small to have a ‘pretty’ spot on my counters. I need the space to work. So I took one more look at my pretty kitchen set-up, and than it had to go.
But I wasn’t ready to give up on the idea to use the baskets in my kitchen. I love them so much I want to see them daily. So if I used then in a more practical manner, maybe that would work…
So I filled them with fruit and veggies. And they looked pretty and useful at the same time.
Btw, you have no idea how hard it is to get a beautiful, nicely balanced shot in my kitchen with the black countertops and backsplash that I have…
I liked my 3-tier stand as fruit and veggie baskets.
But it still wasn’t very practical. So I thought about another spot to beautify with these babies.
I decided my bathroom could use a little accessorizing too.
This little set-up made my heart sing. All my little bath and shower trinkets looked so glamorous in the baskets. And my thrifted Sea Star looked right at home there.
But in the end, this little vignette had the same problem as the one in my kitchen: space was too precious. My bathroom is really tiny, think hotel bathroom, and you get the drift. And that little vignette was taking the space I needed to ‘house’ my toilet paper, and we all know you can’t live without toilet paper….
So I moved the baskets up another floor.
And here in my craft room they have been living ever since. Overflowing with lace and ribbons. Looking pretty on my library cabinet.
I love them just as much as I thought I would. They look like they belong here.
So were did you like them best? Or do you have any other ideas of how I could use them? Please share, I’d love to hear your ideas….
