Repurposed bike rack.....

     Whilst (just wanted to use the word) out shopping at one of my new favorites, Farm Girls Vintage Finds, I happened upon a rusty old bike basket. At just $10 I knew I could put it to use in some way. It's metal, it's old, it can be spray painted, so of course it had to come home with me. It sat on the porch for a week, then in my family room for another week. Let's just be honest. Sometimes all the time I bring home something I have no actual use for at the moment.

     The new bedding came for the boy's room and I saw the forlorn bike basket sitting on the floor in the boy's room. I realized it was time to put this puppy to use. I went outside, applied a couple coats of Valspar spray paint and mounted it in the boy's room on their artwork/chore wall. It's great to corral sticker books and lose papers. Little Rural was quick to add a few things.

     Sometimes these are my favorite finds! Simple, practical and salvaged.

  1. That's a great find, Alexis. I can always find a use for another basket. Especially if it is metal :)
