A-tisket A-tasket A-free-for-me Basket

Today at work I saw a couple faux-tree baskets sitting by the door ready to go out to the trash. You know the kind, every office has them, the big dusty fake trees "planted" in some kind of basket. Like a tree really grows out of a basket? But when I saw them being taken to their final resting place I noticed one of the baskets was not half bad. And if it was free, I figured I could take it home and make it work.

The basket had a ton of faux moss on the top which I scooped up and into a ziplock bag (to be used for an undecided future project requiring fake moss) but then under the moss was tons of foam inside a plastic bag. I guess over time though the bag kind-of became "one" with the basket and had to be pulled out in chunks to remove fully. After about ten minutes I finally had all the foam out and had made quite a mess so I vacuumed it all up as well as the inside of the basket.

I don't really have a plan for it so for now it's sitting under our parsons desk. I may have some fun with it and do a little spray painting since it was free but we'll see how things go. Have a great St. Patty's weekend!
