We moved into our house last May and I have been decorating still recently. I know it has taken a long time, but we still aren't all the way finished. Our main goals with our space are to make sure that we find things that we absolutely love to fill them- so that takes a little bit of time. Here is the newest addition to our decor that I LOVE!
I had seen this (below) several months ago on Pinterest- it is from the Pottery Barn and costs about $200 (plus a $20 charge for shipping since it is catalog/internet only). No thank you!
But I love the look of it and wanted something like it to put in my living room to hold throw blankets.
Then a couple weekends ago we went shopping at my friend's Grandmother's antique store and we found this beauty. I loved it so much. I love the copper and how rustic it looks. The inside was a little dirty so I made a liner for it. I added a little bit of embroidery around the top to give it a little more interest.
We love having it in our living room. I am not sure if we will always keep blankets in it or if we will use it for something else down the line.
***Update- I made a tutorial for making this lining!***
I had intended to make a tutorial on how I made the lining, but I forgot my camera at my sister's house- so that isn't happening! If you have any questions about how I made the liner I will do my best to let you know- drop me a line- firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be linking up with some of these parties!
Thanks for stopping by!
