Trash to treasure

Remember this old, blue, basket I found at Salvation Army?

When I saw it on the overcrowded shelf I'm pretty sure I emptied out several smaller baskets to get to it. I had a plan. But, since I'm not always the best "follow-through-er" on my plans, I'm actually surprised its already done and up for display!

I wanted something Fall-Festive, that I could also use for Christmas time. I think I've nailed it. Thanks to a can of red spray paint and a package of raffia (that I also got at salval). Total = $2, maybe.

Right now I'm using it as a fruit/veggie basket - but, I think for Christmas it may hold ornaments or a bunch of scented pine cones :) Now THIS is the kind of DIY I can get into. Simple.
