I am not the first, nor will I be the last to use these for something other than gifts, but they are so sturdy I had to post! Now I won’t drop these baskets on my head anymore trying to remember what’s in them. The cute chalkboard gift tags are from Target and the baskets I already had from IKEA. With a little twine they can look cute labeling almost anything, and at $2.99 for 4 tags why would I use anything else?
I have a few of these boxes from a restaurant and have been want to make them into an herb garden for awhile but I wasn’t sure the best way to protect the insides from water. I used plastic sheeting and a staple gun for my raised beds, but these are so tiny. What to do?
Check out the solution!
Last year one of our foster dogs (Birdie – yeah, I’ll name names) destroyed an antique tea cart I had sitting on the patio. She was afraid of the fireworks, I’ll forgive her, but it look me a solid year to get over it enough to strip the pieces of their hardware. Yesterday I added this handle to our rolling butcher block. It’s just an IKEA business, bought on Craigslist when we first moved here, and we seldom roll it out because it’s heavy and needs two hands to grip the sides. Not anymore!
To do this you will need to have a drill, screws and a handle.
