As we all tend to get more and more settled into a new home, we find places for things we’ve tucked away in a storage closet. Like in the case of the baskets I made years ago. Yes indeed, I took some basket weaving classes. What can I say, it soothes my creative nature. I finally found a home to display the beauty of each basket! Read on!
I am blessed by high ceilings in my new home and while in my laundry room one day, I was thinking how the wire basket on the counter was filling with dried roses, and where would I put them next! Looking up at the top of my cherry wood cabinets, I thought that would be the perfect place to house them, but…. I need something to contain them. That’s when the light bulb went on and I thought about the beautiful baskets that I’ve made, which were hidden from view and appreciation. So today I recused them from the closet and place each one in the best possible way to show off their own style. I am so proud of each one and now I get to admire them all the time instead of just when I need something from that closet! Will I fill them with my Costco roses after I’ve enjoyed them and dried them? That is yet to be determined!
As you can see in the pictures the cabinets have some fun molding on the top which creates a lip, meaning that the actual cabinet sits below the molding. So thinking I needed some so that my baskets were’nt hidden by cabinet molding, I went green, using some packing paper from boxes from a Southern Living at HOME order that just arrived. Putting the paper on top of the cabinet gave my baskets just the right height, the paper is hidden from view, even still with it being brown, it blends nicely!
Going Green, displaying my baskets, and decorating all in one morning! Ah, now that’s a GOOD day! Look around, do you have something you cherish? A treasure hidden from view, where will you display it? Look around!
