Simple DIY Project

Yesterday I set off with a client in order to find something fun and different to fill a wall space in her kitchen that was bothering her. She had tried many different options, but just wasn't happy with any of them. We searched high and low and finally decided to get creative and make something original.

                                         So, let's take a look at the area before we started.


BEFORE

We started by finding 3 small baskets from World Market, then stopped at Hobby Lobby to buy some canvas cloth.


Cutting strips for the handle and to use to attach the baskets


Close up of the basket and beginning the process

Top handle completed and beginning to tie the lower baskets.


Holding it up to eyeball the height


Screwing in the hardware


 The final product:

AFTER

 We "shopped" her kitchen for items to fill the baskets. A potted plant was added on top. Then colorful dishtowels were rolled up and allowed to peek out in order to add a bit of color. Lastly, we found a miniature rolling pin, some silverware and a mango to finish off the look.
