If you look at any Industrial Farmhouse decor there is always one thing in common…Wire Baskets!!
When I think of Wire Baskets I think of storage. Especially in my hutch…
Keeps me organized.
But baskets can be decorative and still serve a purpose. Like my silverware carousal from Magnolia Farms…
This Trio Tin Basket also from Magnolia Farms was intended for utensils…or was it? I’ve seen it decorated with Christmas Greenery, Napkins, or even olive oil.
My Daughter in law Kristen gave me this zinc metal basket last year for Mother’s Day that I use for all my wonderful Temecula Valley Olive Oils I love to cook with.
You could also use this to hold wooden spoons, spatulas, or Wine..that’s great idea!!!
I purchased this Paper Towel holder at the The Farmer’s Wife in Old town Temecula. The owner keeps her store full of fun Farmhouse Decor to enhance your home. If you’ve never been there, go check it out next time you are in Old Town Temecula.
But how can you get a similar look on your own without spending the money?
For Starters… Keep your eyes Open!!
Wire Baskets and Wood are the Perfect Marriage!
When I go to Garage Sales, I’m always on the hunt for baskets or anything made with metal wire.
Re Purposing is also fun when you add your baskets to reclaimed wood.
I Found these baskets at a garage sale. Made a killer storage shelf with hooks for hanging coats, purses or backpacks…How fun for a laundry room or even better a children’s bedroom !
My girlfriend Kathleen, owner of “Gypsy Sunset” in Murrieta, purchased this rack for her displays in her awesome store.
FYI…Stay tuned for Shop of the month for March “Gypsy Sunset “
Have a coffee tin can and wire basket? How about attaching wire basket to distressed wood, paint your can distressing it with some sand paper and plant with your favorite flowers or succulents. You’ve got a fun new Wall Hanging with dimension.
I found this basket at our house left in the garden by the previous owner. It was half buried with dirt and debris.
The chain was broken so I now use it on my coffee table for a faux succulent display.
A Hidden Treasure.!
In this photo I wanted you to see how using a garage sale frame, chicken wire, coffee can, make a great wall hanging by securing them all to some painted distressed wood !
I sold this but I would hang this on my porch with seasonal plants like geraniums or lavender.
Change it out with the seasons! A Poinsettia at Christmas, or Tulips for Easter. Just have fun with it.
So whether your baskets are in your hutch to keep everything tidy…
Or a keep sake from your childhood. Like this old Milk Bottle holder which was used to deliver milk to our porch! Now used to display my glasses…
Before you get out your checkbook, look around. You just might be surprised at what you find!!
