Repurposed Vintage Wire Baskets

This weekend my cousin came to visit, and one of our first priorities was to hit up some of my town’s amazing flea markets. She scored a gorgeous white headboard for $30 (wish I had taken pictures), and I found these vintage pink wire baskets. I walked by them at first thinking, “Those are cute, but what would I do with them?” About 2 seconds after I imagined using them for storage in my dressing room, she announced, “You could hang them on a wall and use them like shelves!” Yes, we are kin. So, I happily forked over $18 and had instant shelving for my collection of clutches, hats, and scarves.
I made the button art at a craft party last year. I found the idea here on Design*Sponge.

Also, I’m guest posting today over on VIew Along the Way. Kelly has a great series that showcases bloggers’ homes. I’ll be talking about being content with aspects of your home even though they may not be exactly what you had in mind. Head on over and say “hello”!

      What a great find! They match your art perfectly. I especially like that you can see all of your accessories through the wire baskets. I can only hope to discover such a great find at my local flea market!

      That’s so exciting Kelli! (Both the wedding and apartment.) I secretly think I was born in the wrong country. I tell my husband that I want to speak to our (future) kids in a British accent just though they’ll have one. He thinks I’m kidding…

      If I were to get married and do a wedding all over again, here some things I would definitely include:
      1. Bunting of beautiful faded fabrics
      2. Vintage hankies for guests to wave at the send off in lieu of bird seed or bubbles.
      3. Cute wooden hand painted signs to guide guests.
      4. Somehow incorporating your story into the center pieces or decor. Gorgeous flowers are great to look at, but your story would mean so much more to guest.

      Ok, that’s all. Good luck with the planning and congrats.

      I just found this cute, cute post, and like others, I’d like to hear about how you mounted them. Hopefully you’ll be willing to chime in and describe your hanging methods! Please! :)

      (I’ve tried hanging mine, without finding a way to get the mount secure — which is why I’m really hoping for some advice! Yours look great!!)
