It was a finished project without a purpose until last week when I brought home a big bag
Fruit in the fruit picking basket makes perfect sense and is so obvious...maybe that's why
it never occurred to me.
I peeled off all the remaining orange paint and sprayed the rusty basket with matte acrylic sealer. The architectural piece was left over from another project and the glass piece came from my stash of old lamp parts. I drilled a hole large enough to accommodate the base of the basket, then glued it in place with Gorilla glue. I think I used E6000 for the lamp part.
But wait! What's better than a basket full of cherries?
A basket full of vintage doorknobs.
Don't you wish these grew on trees?
