What's in Your Picnic Basket?


On Tuesday, I got this wonderful picnic basket at Goodwill. It was dirty, it was peeling and it was dented...to me it was perfect!


The wood and wicker was really dry too. I pulled out that Orange cleaner and now it's clean and it smells like oranges!



I put it in the corner in our bedroom...no, we aren't going to picnic in our bedroom...


I'm going to use it to store our receipts....previously we used a Priority Box (very classy, huh?)


And I can set some magazines on top instead of piling them on the nightstand...

Good Morning, Terry! Oh, I LOVE old picnic baskets. I have a stack of them in my bedroom - five all together. And, I have that very one as well.

Right now, they're storing quilting fabric and cross stitch supplies. Aren't they great!

What a sweet basket you found and how useful it will be for you!

Absolutely perfect use for your basket. The "imperfections" add character and it looks very nice holding excess clutter in the bedroom. I need about 10 'o those. Yeeup.

I love your attitude towards recycling. You did a great job. The picnic basket can definitely contain more receipts, mail, etc. Thanks for sharing your innovative idea.

What a fun find! I like how you're using it...it is a step or two (or three) up from a Priority box ;) Love your fur babies.
