Hey guys! I thought I had this scheduled for yesterday, but apparently I can’t read a calender. I’m sorry about that! But better late than never, right?
Happy Memorial Day! Do any of you have some awesome plans for the day? On Saturday we started the Freedom Trail in Boston. 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. I’m sure we’ll hit up the hardware store. I love me some Memorial Day sales and I’ve got a lot of projects on my list. 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.
