Laundry Basket Holiday Vignette

Besides decorating our new home, I now am decorating it for the holidays.  Fun on top of more fun!  My arrangements are simpler, with more organic components.  I still have a soft spot for sentimental family things, and have found room in our small sunroom for my traditional red and green gems.  I’ll show pictures of it one day soon.

In our great room, I created this side table from a vintage laundry basket.  When the sides are folded down, and a glass top added – it makes a sturdy and just-the-right-height table.  And I can’t get enough of a vintage, industrial metal look these days.  The lamp is new – from my friend Lisa’s shop – Elegant Details in Mill Creek.  A couple of hand crafted Santas, a few natural elements, and a vintage wood box from France. 

I hope you are finding some time to enjoy some holiday traditions and activities too!

    What a great way to show off the laundry basket! I love the industrial look too. It sure updates the house and mine is starting to look like a granny lives here!

      I know just what you mean with our homes starting to look like a granny lives there. I love being a grandma, but don’t want my home to look like one lives there! Much joy to you this holiday season!

      Having raised two “active” boys, I am a big fan of furniture with rounded edges. Glass tops in general make me sort of crazy, but the round ones seem to have a higher survival rate. Thanks for the nice blog visit, and happy holiday wishes to you!
