Hanging Produce Basket

I don't know about you, 
but in my house- counter space is at a premium.
I don't have a lot of room so putting my bananas in a cute bowl
takes up precious room I need to use for something else.

I had to come up with another solution
to store my produce.

One wouldn't think produce storage would
be that big of deal.
But seriously, this took me forever to figure out.

I tried a bunch of baskets and bowls
but didn't love any of it.
I should have known that 
my trusty Target would have the solution.

I liked the gold color, but I wanted to tone 
it down a bit.




I tried using black rub and buff.
It was very splotchy and didn't work at all.  
I've used gold rub and buff on another project and it worked fine,
but black was no good.




So I gave the basket a coat of black spray paint*.




Then I hit it with a tiny bit of sanding
to distress it.

I made a sign for the basket
from a scrap piece of wood.

I used this tutorial to make the sign
with a design from the Silhouette Store.




To attach the sign, I used a small metal mending plate*.




I slightly bent the mending plate and screwed it into the 
back of the sign around the metal bar of the basket.

to hang it on the wall.

It works so well!
It gets my produce off the counter
to save precious space.
And it looks cute to boot!!
