CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT {Super Cheap} Pottery Barn Inspired Numbered Baskets Don’t you love it when a make-over comes in at a bargain price? If you know me, you know that I am a {cheapskate} thrifty person and love to copy those high-end designs on a dime! Well…this has got to be one of my favorites because it was under $5.00! Woo hoo!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Faux Enamel French Number Plaques You may remember these DIY enamel-look French number plaques that I did about a year and a half ago. I loved them at the time…

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Faux Enamel French Number Plaques …and I put them on the bookshelf in my black and white toile guest bedroom. I have been very happy with them, but a big change recently has me making some updates in that room. My thirteen-year-old grandson has begun using that room when he comes over for a visit! He has simply outgrown the twin bed in his old room. He is now taller than his Granny! (No…say it isn’t so!)

Baby Kitty Baby Kitty is insisting that I make some changes in that room to give it a little more masculine edge. Unfortunately, he understands my tendency to baby only too well as proven by his name! “Sheesh! A grown-up tom cat named Baby Kitty!” He prefers to be called BK.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Numbered Baskets Instructions So here’s what I did:
  1. I bought some random house numbers at Home Depot at $1.50 per number…three for a total of $4.50! Yippee! I did not remove the old numbers, but simply turned the baskets around in case I change my mind later.
  2. I threaded some jute twine through both of the holes…
  3. …and pushed the ends through the spaces in the basket using a pair of scissors. I tied the twine on the inside…
  4. …and taa daa! There it is! Could it be any easier or cheaper?
