thrifted thursday #4


 
I have a thing for wire baskets.  
I store my scraps in them so I can see all the colors I have to work with.  Usually I find the bare metal variety...but I could not pass up this bright yellow enameled piece.


It is pretty large but very shallow - no good for scraps but I figured it would look great on the wall.


Had to bring out the toothbrush to clean off the grime.


Once tidied, it fit nicely next to the shelf I built from old milk crates (told ya I love wire baskets).
I grabbed some S-hooks (might spray paint them white) at the hardware shop and will store my perle/pearl cotton on my new rack...

Also found some more old suitcases for our table display - I could not leave them because the yellow and turquoise colors were a  perfect fit.  Total for everything:  $6.00.
