Creative Living Idea: Up-cycled Bicycle Basket.

Very often, the best of ideas come from unexpected finds. Like this bicycle wire basket, found curbside a while back... White + Rusty= Perfection- I simply couldn't pass it by!
It now houses my magazines on my coffee table. Beneath it, an antique, hand- embroidered linen bath towel I purchased at the antique market last year.
Definitely my favorite corner of the house for relax at the moment!

Sharing my treasure at White Wednesday. Visit the other participants for plenty of inspiration in white and neutral shades!

If you are a subscriber to Stampington Postscript newsletter, you may have already spotted my upcycled bicycle basket , as one of the winners of the Styled Cover Photo Contest. Yay!
Hope you all have a creative day!
