We inherited a really cool old freezer with this house. It must be from like 1953 or something, but it still works like a charm! Should I say it? OK, I’m going to say it. They just don’t make ’em like they used to!
Anyway, our freezer is packed right to the brim with food, so I took out the organizer baskets and threw them onto our crumbling cement floor and left them there. That was about 6 months ago.
One day not too long ago, I went down there to get some meat or something and I saw them in a whole new light. Aren’t they selling wire baskets like that for about a gazillion dollars nowadays at Pottery Barn? Yeah, they are. All I had to do with these was clean them up a bit and paint the white plastic handles dark grey.
For now I just have one of them on my shelf holding a few magazines. To “Fall it up” a little I made this super simple banner using an idea I stole from The Happier Homemaker. Of course her’s has cute little mini clothes pins and cheery baker’s twine, but I love this idea in general for making anything a little bit festive in a flash.
Here’s how it looks with it’s other Fallified buddies!
Do you have junk that could be something really cool? I bet you do! Look around your house. You never know what you’ll find when you change your perspective a little.
