Turn a Sewing Basket into a Playful Planter | Hello Lidy for Curbly

I love those cute and quirky vintage pieces that are truly unique, but sadly no longer serve a purpose that they once did. Take for example this darling sewing basket that was given to me. I couldn't say no, it had way too much potential - but I don't sew and I had no actual use for it. So, I decided to turn this sewing basket into a 4-legged llama planter. Yes, llama planter.

DIY Magnetic Poster Frame

I inherited a love for art from my grandmother. Her home was seriously a museum that I loved to peruse and take in. It was full of beautiful decor and art; some she brought into Canada with her after she immigrated from Holland. Some, she picked up along the way. I always thought she spent a fortune on most of her collections. But it turns out, they were affordable prints that simply spoke to her, which she collected over time. And that is exactly how I seem to collect the many pieces of art in our home.
