Adding Some Character

IMG_1797
Have you ever dissected a piece of furniture or home decor that you love to see what it is exactly that you love about it?
For me it is usually in the little unique details.

  Enter these woven baskets with lids. 
I bought these on super clearance for like $15 for all three. They are fine as is….  Nice basic baskets, but nothing to write home about.

But by simply adding a little detail, they suddenly look interesting and unique.  I just tied on some old  metal pieces I already had with twine and a few minutes later…some instant character to my boring baskets.

I really love them now.
Look around and notice what you like and why.  Then see how you can turn what you already have into something you love!
