I spruced her up with new fabric gathered in the door and an old key and a tassel.
I've had this basket for years too. I painted the band and handles to match my decor...
and made a little card so I wouldn't forget what's stored in it. And yes, I would forget!!
I also moved my cutting table from the other room. I made it from a door and it works great to cut fabric, make crafts, etc. I don't have to worry about doing damage to the top since it doesn't really matter. I painted and varnished the top to match my new decor and made a skirt for it to hide sewing storage.
I just pleated the fabric about every inch or so and stapled it to the table with a staple gun. Then I cut a bias strip from red fabric two inches wide and folded. I used a glue gun to attach to my skirt and it hides my staples nicely. Well, it's coming together, slowly but surely. I still have some ideas so I'll share with you when they happen.
