Goodwill Baskets

There are some things you shouldn't buy at Goodwill, like hats, pantyhose, and lingerie. Seriously now... But there are some things you should definitely buy at Goodwill: lamps, books, glassware, and baskets. Baskets are the perfect way to bring a little natural texture to a space without having to spend much money at all. On a recent trip to Goodwill I picked up four baskets for six bucks- you can't beat that.

We have never had a bread basket so the round one on the top was perfect for the two of us. It will also come in handy at Wednesday night Bible studies for snacks and other things. 

The square one was just a cool shape so I'm not sure where exactly it will go.

This round woven one was the perfect size for a potted plant so I stuck one in and called it a day.

This guy seemed to be a great solution for corralling mail, keys, and everything else that winds up by the front door. I want to get some string to loop around the top and hang it from the doorknob. I may also have a little fun with it that could involve paint. We'll see if I can spare the time between priming and painting the built-ins.

Have a great weekend all!
