basket art

A tisket, a tasket, it’s time to hang a basket! (DIY Wall Art Idea #17)

When I first  saw a post by Melissa at the Inspired Room on how she used baskets as wall art on the entry wall of her craftsman-inspired home, I think I might have drooled a little (or, a lot).  I LOVE Melissa’s style, and this wall is one of my favorite spaces in her home. Truthfully, I’d never really thought of hanging baskets on a wall, but when I saw this photo of her’s, I wondered why it wasn’t a more obvious choice for wall decor.  (She even used one of the baskets to cover an annoying light switch – clever!)

(About to pin it?If so, can I ask that you pin this image directly from Melissa’s web site so it’s correctly attributed to The Inspired Room?  Thanks!)

There’s just something deliciously eclectic and ‘collected’ about this wall art idea.

I’m usually one for bright pops of color in a neutral space, but I could quite easily live in either of these rooms. What’s sacrificed in color is more than made up for by the gorgeous texture that a grouping of baskets offers.

Don’t be surprised if you notice a basket pop up on one of our walls soon.  I’m hooked on this idea!

Until next time,

Also, please note: I am currently in the process of transferring my RSS feed from Feedburner to another feed service.  This should be pretty seamless and shouldn’t affect very many of you (if any), but I wanted to let you know in case you notice anything wonky if you receive my posts in your RSS reader or by-email (e.g, dual copies of posts).  Please bear with me over the next few days until any kinks are worked out.  Thanks so much, and I appreciate your patience!
