You remember that basket? The one I bought on clearance at Target for still way more than I should have ever paid for a basket? This basket that made it's debut in my summer living room tour? Kuzco's poison? That basket?
Well, now it's table.
I've needed a sidetable there for a bit and happened to see that basket with different eyes one day. I set an antique Egyptian tray(as in, actually from Egypt. Because I had cool great grandparents.) on top for a more even surface. It's light and easy to tip over so it's not so great to set your hot coffee on when there's a kiddo bouncing around, but it looks nice and it works if you want to set down a plate or cup of water.
I love trying to find different uses for things! Have you ever used something differently than what it was intended for?
