At last week’s market, while crossing the road, coffee in hand I flicked my eyes over the outside the hall. Bingo – I see wicker baskets! I am loving these as they are light and easy to carry, and once full let’s people rummage around in them. The basket I wanted was too deep but there was another that was just right. Although it was covered in an icky red floral material, it was perfect.
Draping the white satin (I had used for protection elsewhere) in it I filled it with my earrings and then re jigged the table so it would fit.
Once at home again on Tuesday I set about pulling it apart and gluing the white satin into it. I’m starting to get the hang of it, and this one looks really good. I sew a pale pink trim and then add a bow on one corner (I mis-measured the trim and there was an inch or two missing it) and it looks good as new and just what I like for my displays.
I will get better pictures of my table this week at Snug and post them up.
Now, if only I could use two tables it would be fab!
What old pieces have you picked and seen the potential with to decorate for your house or market stall?
Keep smiling, 🙂
