Thrift Sotre find by Life as a Thrifter

As a thrifter, I’m always on the lookout for a good basket. I was fortunate enough to run across this one at the Goodwill recently, and I literally couldn’t get it to the register fast enough!


For this project I decided to get out the jigsaw . . . something, I’m sad now, that I’d never used before.


It worked like a charm! It was so easy and much lighter than I expected! (I’m dying to use again . . .)


Newly renovated, the basket now sits on our dining room table . . . and houses a few wine corks. :)




Happy hunting, everyone!

    I love how it looks in your room. I never would have thought to do that with a basket.
