Baskets Make it Better: 3 Easy Ways to Decorate with Baskets
It’s not a newsflash that baskets are an excellent way to hide clutter.
But beyond organizing, what about using baskets in other ways?
Natural fibers are really on-trend right now (like sisal rugs and bamboo shades!)… and it doesn’t get cheaper or easier than a basket!
Here are three quick and nifty ways to use baskets around your house.
1) Basket as a planter
You may already know about my love for the Fiddlehead Fig Houseplant… the basket in place of a planter is what REALLY takes this look to the next level.
Imagine this plant in a boring ceramic planter and then compare it to this basket – so much better, right? You can get a similar basket from places like Pottery Barn for $130, and I got mine at Home Goods for $60.
A great great place for baskets at good prices is HomeGoods if you have one near you; same with Pier One. Pottery Barn, Wisteria, and Serena and Lily are good online resources as well.
I’ve also had great luck at my local Goodwill store – can you imagine how cheap baskets are there?? I mean literally $1 for something that would be $40 at a store.
And don’t forget to hit the flea markets, tag sales and estate sales that will be popping up this Spring. TONS of good finds there for sure.
