Hey guys! Â I thought I had this scheduled for yesterday, but apparently I can’t read a calender. Â I’m sorryÂ aboutÂ that! But better late than never, right?
Happy Memorial Day! Â Do any of you have some awesome plans for the day? Â On Saturday we started the Freedom Trail in Boston. Â We only made it half way through the sites before there was a toddler breakdown.
Today I’m thinking we’ll try to finish up the second half. Â I’m sure we’ll hit up the hardware store. Â I love me someÂ MemorialÂ Day sales and I’ve got a lot of projects on my list. Â And I have a few more after seeing the projects this week.
Like always, the poll is in the sidebar and will be open until Friday night.
Craft #1 – Pretty Poppy Painting – Amanda @ Simply Handmade
Craft #2 – Folding Camp Chairs – Wendy @ Craft Goodies
Craft #3 – Wire Baskets – Angela @ Better Together
With some chicken wire, hardware cloth, and a drop cloth I created wire baskets with liners.
I first made a shoe basket using the hardware cloth wire. This basket measures 24 x 20 x 8 inches. It is nice and big. It holds our shoes by the front door.
Then I made 4 smaller baskets using the chicken wire. These baskets fit nicely into the shelves on our desk.
For a final touch to each basket, I added a wooden tag which I painted in chalkboard paint. The numbers can easily be erased if I choose to write more specifically about what each basket contains.
These baskets are a great way to stay organized, and a great way to hide all of my clutter.
