I Saw Potential…

There once was a unwanted, ugly, ORANGE basket that sat at Goodwill… 


But I saw its potential, so I brought it home and gave it a makeover.


Now, the basket has new lease on life and it’s sitting, happily in the corner of the living room!


The End.


  1. Nice! And it looks like it's happy in the perfect spot! :)

  2. Way to go green and recycle my friend! I love turning odd bits into treasures :) Again, another similarity! You sure you and Josh don't want to live in TN? There's an awfuly cute house FOR SALE next to mine :) LOL

    Hugs and Have a Fantastic Week!

  6. Together we would make a dynamic decorating team. Think of all the stuff we could repurpose.

  7. Oh I love those sort of "finds"..especially when they end up working!

  8. Girl! How did you know I was waiting for another Lauren project?!

  10. Very cute and creative!!!! I remember when you did the foam headboard - I would love to try to do that!! xxxooo

  11. Looks like a UT basket. Around these parts we call that Longhorn Orange :) Austin is the only place you can wear burnt orange and not be a "what not to wear candidate"

  12. Great job! You have such great luck at Goodwill!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
