Today I am kicking off a new weekly (or bi-weekly depending on how busy life gets) feature called
Monday Make-Do and Be Thankful
I was inspired by Heather and her
I am hoping this will be a way to acknowledge the things I DO have instead of focusing on what I don't have, and practicing a grateful heart for them.
Also, I am hoping this will challenge me to use all the things and "someday" projects that I have stuffed in closets and on shelves before I spend my money on something else.
So for the first project we have for our inspiration:
Pottery Barn's French Wire Hamper.
Adorable. Love it.
Beyond my budget for the forseable future.
The Jolly Goode version.
Pretty Adorable too I think.
Made from things I had on hand = Very-within my budget.
Old wire locker-room basket painted pink and faded from lots of use since I bought and painted it years ago.
Old cabinet door salvaged from the side of the road.
Suitcase stand painted pink.
Maybe one day I will make a liner for this little impromptu hamper. Maybe a bunch of tea towels I have stuffed in a drawer all stitched together? That could work...maybe that will even be next weeks project!
So that is my Monday Make-Do and Be Thankful project.
Have any projects like this going on at your house?Are you participating in Heather's project too?
