Well, after dropping my kids to school on Monday morning, I drove past a rather large collection of motley-looking debris, but something caught my attention...
This wonderfully generous wicker clothes hamper! It had a lid that was falling to bits, but it wasn't the lid that I was interested in. Tossing the lid to the ground, I was delighted to find that the basket itself was in perfect condition. A little bit of dusty lint caught in the bottom - but nothing that a good hose-out couldn't fix. Besides I wanted it to replace this:
The catchall for our outdoor toys and sporting equipment was quite cutting it in the catch-ALL department. There are several balls in the yard that just don't fit, and being smaller on the bottom means it tips over quite a lot. So bye-bye green plastic laundry hamper - your new job is to hold the pool noodles :) and hello savvy sports storage! Doesn't this look a lot better?
|And it's only half-full!|
Now just to decide if I should paint it. White allover? White-wash perhaps? Just a wide white stripe around the middle? What do you think?
And this was my other find for the day - a sturdy cane pot stand - scored this one on the main road on the way to pick up the kids from school.
Definitely going to pain this one white as I have a little niche for it in my main bathroom. Will show you how this one turns out another day.
