Basket Case

No, I am not crazy! I am more and more loving baskets! I love that you can add one on a table, throw your stuff in it and it looks nice!

I went to Goodwill a few weeks ago looking for a nice basket to contain our turtles' stuff (food, treats, etc.)

I was so happy with what I found!

1st basket

 For $1.99 
I love the shape of it! 
However it was an ugly dark green color and it wasn't spray painted well!

I went to Home Depot, picked up some spray paint, with a gift card we had. 

I had to put it in the light so you can see the color better.
I made sure I got all areas and angles. 

Ta-Da! It is perfect for the turtle stuff!

2nd basket
Or should I say baskets!
I wasn't planning on buying a lot of baskets, but these were only $1.99 each! 
Which we have another basket set (came with 4 sizes) like these but those were $17!
Total: $5.97 for 3!

3rd basket

$1.99- catching a trend! lol
Had a Christmasy liner in it, but I started to pull it off at the store to see if it could be easily removed.

Much better! I think it looks so much nicer!

4th basket

The very last basket. 
Which now holds my silver bird
Hmm...this one:
I thought the basket looked like a nest! 
As soon as I saw it I thought of this birdy!

Sorry I forgot to take a picture of it now!

There you have it, all my baskets!
Total cost: $10.94  for 6!

I'll show you where I put the nice lined ones as soon as I wash the liners and get them put up!
Have a nice day! Stay warm! (It's 35 in Houston)
