Decor Steals Design Ingenuity Event- Vintage Farmhouse Wire Baskets

A few weeks back I was asked if I wanted to participate in a fun event that Decor Steals was putting together called Design Ingenuity where they team up a few bloggers and  send them a mystery item and the bloggers have to come up with a way to use the item in their home. You all know how much I love Decor Steals so I was totally on board. I mean who does not like receiving goodies in the mail!?:) If you have not heard of Decor Steals before you are missing out. They offer up one deal a day at up to 80% off retail and shipping is only $5!

My goodie box came and inside was a set of Antique White Wire Baskets. I had to put on my thinking cap for this challenge and try to come up with something outside of the ordinary. I mean there are so many wonderful uses for these baskets from using them for towels, toilet paper, magazines, fruit, cooking utensils. I mean the list could go on and on. You could even use them to create a light fixture with. I did not have enough time for that though.

I was in the middle of trying to figure out my spring front porch and a light bulb went off pun intended!;)

I decided that the baskets would make the perfect containers for flowers on the porch.

I grabbed my vintage looking display ladder and screwed in three small screws that I could hang the baskets from.

I then ran to my local super center to find some pretty flowers at a decent price even though I have terrible green thumb.

After getting home I needed to find something to wrap the flower pots in since you would be able to see them thru the wire baskets. I first wanted to use burlap but I did not have enough. I remembered though that I had brown paper lunch bags stored away. They made for the perfect cover up don't ya think?

Thank you Decor Steals for such a fun challenge. Mr. Front Porch came home and commented on how nice they looked out on the porch so mission accomplished. Now if I can only finish up the rest of the porch. I know I will be using these baskets many times over.
