I’ve been doing some recycling today. I’m not much a garbage recycler (I need to change that.), but when it comes to furniture and home accessories I’m all over it.
Isn’t that the way it is with life. Some times we need to “recycle” ourselves and take some quiet time to make small shifts in ourselves. We are all beautiful the way we are, but we get stuck in ruts or are making some “not so good” decisions that need to be changed. Constant improvement and growing is my mantra! Many times I take a step forward, but then take 10 steps back. You know….life stuff gets in the way some times. My ultimate goal is to better myself each day. Recycle, reclaim, and recover.
I recently found this old broken stool in a dumpster and this awesome large basket at a yard sale.
My brain started churning with the possibilities. Do you have a brain like mine that once it get’s an idea it goes crazy?
Anyway, I had to purchase a round table top from home depot. I could have cut one out of plywood but this size fit perfectly and is really sturdy. I painted it gray to match the basket and added the old stool legs to the bottom.
I then attached the basket to the top using U brackets I found in the Marine section of Home Depot.
That’s it. I love it and it will come in handy for all sorts of things. I haven’t decided yet what I’m going to do with it first.
Maybe a planter, inside or out.
Maybe a magazine and book rack….
For quilts or blankets?
I hope this has given you some ideas for an old stool and basket you may have. I can just imagine an old wooden stool cut down with an old wire egg basket attached to the top. The ideas are endless.
Tell me….what would you do?
