A transformation

The clutterbug gene runs in my family. As of late, my Mom is trying to combat the clutter in her house, which can be good because she passes along some of the stuff she doesn't want to me. It can also be bad because she passes along some of the stuff she doesn't want to me. (:

She gave me this old wastebasket/hamper thing (it's turned upside down in the pic.) It was falling apart, but I thought it had potential...I'm a sucker for a scalloped edge.

I decided life as a plant stand would be a fitting fate for the sad little piece. I added legs to boast it off the ground and covered it in antique sheet music. I have decided for sure if I'm keeping it, but I am very happy with how it turned out.
