Metal Basket Pendant Lights

Think outside the basket?

We are always told to think outside the box. Well it’s time to turn things upside down and think outside the basket.

Vintage industrial baskets can make great storage containers. They can hold just about anything and they look great just about anywhere. By turning metal baskets upside down- they make unique industrial lighting. Just like pendant lighting, this basket light will shed light on your work or counter space and bring real vintage charm to your home. 

I LOVE the industrial look of these lights. I can see them hanging in a kitchen over an island, over a dining table, and outside under a covered patio. There are so many places these lights could go.

I recently posted about Bucket Lighting Inspiration. I shared inspiration using upside down metal baskets and buckets repurposed into beautiful lighting. 

Now they are hanging pendant lights for sale in our store!

Spring Moss Wreath

Happy Monday! I want to share with you a little craft project I worked on yesterday as I helped decorate a friend’s parents' house. We had a great time shopping for home accessories and creating this springtime moss wreath. She already had the moss wreath left over from her daughter's wedding, so we just tweaked it a bit and took what we didn't need off.

While in a local craft store we found a small wood and metal birdhouse, a redbird, and a wooden letter J {we painted brown} that was perfect for the wreath. As we were putting the wreath together we came across another charming, vintage redbird to add to our spring wreath. Needless to say, this wreath now has another purpose; it's hanging beautifully on a mirror from our store, in their newly decorated living room.

I love just about anything related to natural materials and natural colors, so this mossy wreath mixed with burlap fabric makes me smile!

Chicken Coop Turned Coffee Table

One afternoon I was out shopping and came across this rustic, wooden chicken coop. I knew immediately that I was going to repurpose it to a coffee table. So I just added casters to the bottom and cleaned it up a bit, that's all it needed! Now it's a functional coffee table that's for sale at our store. There's plenty of space inside the coop to display books, magazines and accessories. 

When I first spotted it, I was drawn to the spindles and slats, and then of course, the weathered gray wood had me sold. I don't think the coffee table will last very long in our store. Maybe someone will love its character and charm just as much as I do.

Here are a few inspiration ideas using chicken coops as a coffee table.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I just love this color combination and how it can be so bold, yet so quiet depending on how and where you use it. This color scheme brings a sense of freshness to any space. So... do you like these colors together? I sure do. I can't wait to incorporate a punch of color in my home. 

Apparently, the groundhog came out today and declared that we would be having 6 more weeks of winter. I'm really looking forward to springtime. I hope you have a fabulous day!
