An Easy Repurpose


Sometimes repurposing is as easy as bending wire...
I found this gorgeous fryer basket in my travels. No longer useful in its intended purpose (I mean, I'm sure it still works, but there aren't a lot of people deep-frying these days!), I wanted to give it a new life.
The handle is really long and would get in the way if it stayed horizontal, so I gave it a little push and it bent. Another careful push (I didn't want to break it) and I had a nice hanging basket, great for holding fruit (a nice way to make up for all that fried food), or toiletries in the bathroom, or stray office supplies, or a fat pillar candle, or a pot of ivy, or....

So many uses, I almost don't want to sell it!
