Upcycled Bicycle Basket

8:47:00 PM

 Thrift store trash to treasure...

A cone shaped chip wood basket from the thrift store
gets a coat of vinegar/steel wool solution to darkened and give the basket the look of timeworn beauty. 

A piece of vintage rope and the stamped image of a bicycle for decoration.

and this basket has a whole new life holding flowers!

  2. I needed that bicycle basket for my dog to go mountain bike riding with me and my boys. She might fit. Shoot! :)
