Happy Monday Friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Today is the last day to order your Mother Defined or Grandmother Defined burlap sign at the discounted rate of $15. If you’d like to order one you can email me at domesticallyspeaking (at) yahoo (dot) com .
This is a project that I have been sitting on for about a year. I purchased this oh-so-cute trashcan at Home Goods and finally got around to working on the transformation I had planned last week.
Here’s what I came up with…
Here’s what I started with…
Here’s what I used:
$12.99 trash can from Home Goods
West Elm hanging light kit
I used a pen to trace the size I needed to cut out of the basket. Trimming the can was easy except for the wire frame that went down the center of the basket. It took some extra work to get through that wire.
Once the wire was cut I inserted the light fixture through the basket and then twisted the top lip (the scallop-looking piece in the photo below) in place. (With the fixture I had this was the best way I figured to keep it all in place)… oh I scored this West Elm light kit from the Pottery Barn Outlet for only 47 cents… yes!
Then I used the hooks (that came with the kit) to hang it all up.
Oh how I LOVE it!
I think I’m going to make a cute burlap cover for the cord.
And a little looksee with the light on…
Nothing like turning trash into a treasure.
Thanks for stopping by friends… have a fabulous week!
