Today, I am teaming up with several bloggers for a Thrift Store Blog Hop! Y’all know how much I love a good budget friendly DIY! This basket wall cost me under $15 and took me about an hour to create! Baskets are a great way to add decor to your wall for cheap!
First things first! I found all of the baskets at my local thrift shops or rummage sales. All of the baskets were .10 cents to $1 each except for the large round placemats. The trick to finding these baskets is finding different colors, textures and patterns.
The colors do not need to be the exact same but similar in tone, to create a cohesive basket wall. One other thing to consider is to using an odd number of baskets on the wall. It will help balance with an odd number.
Next is to decide how you want to place your baskets on the wall. You can draw out a pattern on paper or lay them out in the floor first.
I chose to go at a diagonal pattern with the three large placemats as my focal point.
You can also lightly draw with pencil to mark where to hang each basket. I like to use very thin nails, called finishing nails, to hang the baskets with. They are small enough that the basket can hang on plus they won’t be an eye sore because they will be hidden by the baskets.
I also enjoy adding touches of greenery throughout my basket wall. Now, be honest, what do y’all think? Do you have a basket wall?
I hope you hop on over and visit my friends to see what they have found on their thrift store finds this month!
