HOME | Woven Basket Wall Art for Less

_MG_3000

The one thing this pandemic has shown me is that I needed to give more love to my home.  My home was built 6 years ago, and it’s pretty much been a clean slate from the beginning with the exception of a picture on a wall here or there. For the longest I’ve wanted to have my home reflect more of my personality.  I see so many things/homes/rooms I love and find so much inspiration, but I’ve never been able to pull it together.  

A couple of years ago I repainted the open area, changing it from the builder grade tan (so blah! I don’t know what the heck I was thinking then!) to the Joanna Gaines special : gray walls with white trim.  Perfect with the wood floor.  But the space still felt a little blah.  Well, since I’ve been sheltering in place, I’ve had the time to start making my home rise up to greet me (as Oprah says).  Starting with something I’ve always loved and wanted to add to my home.  Woven Baskets on the wall. 

Handwoven Baskets Wall Art - Set of 4

I started looking online and ran across the above set of 4 baskets from a well-known high end home retailer  as my inspiration.  I got really excited but chile please!!! Who is about to pay $500 for 4 baskets?!!  Not me! I shared the pic on IG and everyone was pretty much on the same page of heck no!  At that point, a hard core search to find the look for less was on.  I added orange velvet window treatments and a fun colorful rug to liven up the living space since the walls and sectional are gray so I was hoping to incorporate that into the baskets on the wall if I could.

And where is the place we go to find anything and everything…AMAZON!! I found several woven baskets for my wall for around $100.  And I even was able to find a couple with orange in them. I used simple command strips with safety pins to hang them. Easy peasy! They’re so beautiful and interesting and I love the the texture they havebrought to the space.

I adjusted them a little more after these pics were taken and I’ve ordered one more to balance out the top.  But, overall, I think it turned out great! What do you think?

According to Q, being home more made me want to ensure I loved my space enough to tolerate being home more.  I started with something simple on the wall, but my master bedroom, en suite, water closet, hallway, guest bath, and patio are all about to get a new, refreshing look.  It feels pretty good, and I’m very excited!

Have you been bitten by the home refresh bug while being home more?

    I really love the look. AND that you have baskets touching and overlapping. So often the look seems to be to spread things way apart but I find arrangements like yours so much more interesting. Beautiful!

      I agree!! I didn’t want the spread out look. i definitely wanted the grouping look. I think it’s more interesting for sure. Thank you!

    I have several baskets waiting to be hung and have never thought to overlap. It looks amazing!
