This was a marriage between an abandoned fish tank stand and a wicker storage basket lid. Fun project with minimal effort. Just drilled holes in the stand and screwed the lid on. Then cut a small piece of wood for the bottom, stained it, and screwed it on as well. The rest of the basket couldn't be salvaged, but I couldn't bear to throw away the lid. Glad I kept it ....

Recently I also bought an art glass plate (from thriftyshop)to put on my vintage nightstand drawers I use as a sidetable in my living room. Now my glasses won't fall off! & I gained a bit more usable space on the top, too... Posted: 1:12 pm on November 2nd
