DIY Chicken Wire Basket- Vintage Knockoff

If you have ever shopped for "Vintage Baskets"? You better be prepared to spend some moolah!! 

I have been searching when I go on my "Junkin" Adventures, and just can't see myself paying the $$ they want for em. Call me cheap I guess! LOL SO...I decided I've got some chicken wire in the garage, and I gonna figure out how to make one!! 

First I had to figure out something to help make/keep the shape. So as I was cruising around my local Dollar Tree I seen these Cooling Racks...2 for a $1!!! Can't beat that HUH??!! Perfect for the job!

Spring Cleaning & Organizational Tips

Spring is in the air!! Almost time to open those windows...let some fresh air circulate throughout your home! Ahhhh....Love this time of year! I really want to be outta the house on these beautiful days, working on some new projects but we all know it's about that time......SPRING CLEANING!
Some get excited about this, and others dread it! I guess I'm caught in between, maybe it depends on the day. Although I did re-organize the garage this last weekend. And maybe that's partly because I had to make room for new junk that I got!! LOL
On last weeks DIY Sunday Showcase, there were some great link ups shared by you bloggers to help get you in the mood!

DIY Firemans Prayer Sign

If you know a fireman or fire've probably read this poem. I guess just knowing what these brave people choose do everyday...WOW! It really takes a special person to risk it all just to save a stranger. 

A friend of mine wanted this poem to hang on their wall. And she really wanted it to be unique looking.

Making the most of your (small) space

Personal space is important—it’s the one place we can be ourselves. It’s a small piece of the biosphere that reflects us; a mirror for our thoughts, dreams, and opinions. If your chunk of the world is especially cozy, choosing your décor wisely becomes essential. Small areas can easily look cluttered just because of the way that the eye perceives spatial orientation. I’ve come up with my top five tips to help you maximize your cramped space—enjoy!

RePurposed Vintage Door

WestonPrimitiveCo only opens their doors a couple times a year for an open house. Other than that you will find them at events such as Junkjubilee and Junkstock. And they also attend several other events throughout the United States.

This last weekend, I attended their open house event! I had to contain myself, soooo many great treasures! And I'm sure Mr MinettesMaze's checkbook wouldn't have liked it either. LOL
