NEW SERIES!!!! WOOT!!
I'm so excited about this because I think it will make me feel more productive. Now I won't have this amazing board of "To Do" projects, but an UH-MAZING collection of DONE projects :)
So first week....here's the pin I decided to make.
Anyway, isn't it awesome?!? A basket made from paper sacks. So cute!
I don't exactly have a million paper sacks laying around, so I used a lawn bag. Probably a better idea to use a lawn bag anyway because they are double layered and I feel it made my basket SUPER sturdy.
I'm not going to show you all the steps I took since the inspiration picture explains it pretty well. But I will tell you that I modified it a bit. I only did 3 rows instead of 4. I also didn't use all those paper clips to hold my rows in place...it was seriously difficult for me. I wanted a tightly woven basket, so I just hot glued where I felt it needed it.
Mr Perfect says "Hey, that's a pretty nice looking basket". I'm like, "For reals!" Then he says (in a voice that sounded excited, sorta) "Where you gonna put it?" ....he anxiously waits... Me, "I don't know" ....crickets....
I think he was a little disappointed I didn't have some magical answer haha
After he left the room I looked over at the pitiful side table and saw all the remotes everywhere. Light bulb! So my cute little lawn bag basket is now serving as a remote corral. That table was screaming for some attention....it's very sad.
I'm going to give this project a B. I love how cute it is. I love that it's recycled. I love that it's super sturdy and not floppy. I don't like having to guess measurements on something and then have it not work exactly the way it should.
As an added bonus, I still have the other half of my lawn bag, so I just might make another one!
You can check out all my pins on Pinterest. Any recommendations on what you want to see me do for next week??
