How To Use Baskets Around the House

Baskets and I have a long-term love affair.  I rarely meet a basket that I don’t like.

Basket Title 2

Here are a few ways I use baskets around my house.

Findlandia Set

A shallow tray basket is a lovely way to display a tea set.

Sofa Table Complete

These two white picnic baskets in the family room hold throws and throw pillows not in use.

Basket with handle

This one went to the antique booth and sold quickly but it would be great to keep your napkins handy in the breakfast room.

Wicker trunks

These trunk baskets at the end of the bed hold out of season linens and throw pillows.

puddle lenda

This rolling basket holds a stash of odds and ends in my office.

Basket Beautiful Swan

The number 8 basket was a thrift store rescue.  It had a broken handle and a missing handle .  So I performed a little surgery removing the broken handle and replacing both handles with rope.  I tied on a number for decoration and put it to use in my bedroom.

Breakfast Room Centerpiece 3

 Baskets are always handy for holding plants.

Baguette Basket

They can be used as decorative items like this French baguette basket.

Globe Bowl on table

This large tray basket is a table thanks to Ballard Designs.  It was a steal at Ballard’s Backroom.

Wooden Tennis Rackets

This basket corrals a bunch of vintage tennis rackets in my grandson’s room at my house.

I’m glad you stopped by today to see some ways to use baskets in your home.  If you don’t already subscribe to my blog be sure to sign up by e-mail on the side bar or Hello bar at the top, that way you will never miss a post.  I would love for you to follow me on Pinterest here and Facebook here.  Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
