November ‘14 Pattern

Posted by Joanna on 2 Comments

The Painted Wooden Bottom Toy Basket has oak plywood tacked to its base both inside and out so that it is bottom heavy - not tipsy. Whether holding Thomas the Tank Engine or Barbie, this basket serves as both a functional container and a beautiful home decoration. The solid wooden base and sturdy woven sides combine with two hardwood handles to stand up against many hours of play time.

I love the grungy effect on this basket.  I purchased the black grungy basket from Joanna’s Collections and simply adore it!
The finish is matte but somewhat glossy around the edges like this one. Her baskets are very functional and display very well
in any style decor. I don’t have a “country home” and my basket is the focal part of my family room entryway. These baskets are very well made and a treasure to own.
