Hanging Produce Basket

I don't know about you, but in my house- counter space is at a premium.  I don't have much which means storing my bananas in a cute bowl on the counter would take up precious room I need to use for more important things like making my beloved pb&j!

I cannot have that,  so I had to come up with another solution to store my produce.  And that solution is a  Hanging Produce Basket!

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 found this hanging basket at Target I liked the gold color.  I toned down the brassiness with a light coat of black spray paint.

I distressed it slightly with sandpaper to allow some of the gold to peek through.

To hang on the top of the basket, I made a Market Fresh sign from a scrap piece of wood in my garage.  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 that I slightly bent to go around the metal bar of the basket.  Then I screwed it into the back of the sign with a screw on each side.




The metal basket has keyholes on the back for hanging.  I decided to use Command saw tooth hangers to hang it without damaging the wall.

Once the basket was done and hung on the wall, I filled it with produce.

This Hanging Produce Basket works well to get produce off the counter and save precious space.  The bonus is that it makes a cute piece of decor as well!
