Here is what I filled the basket with...the wooden piece on the top is actually a small table-very clever indeed!
The breakdown- a rustic candlestick to go with the red candle. White cloth napkins with simple throwaway utensils that match the color theme. Our checkered tablecloth~makes a simple meal spectacular, and of course the mini cooler that fit perfectly and will hold the luncheon items. It is far more special to do something not expected yet simple on an outing. Anyone can go to dinner and the movies...
On to my simple kitchen. Slowly but surely it is coming into the focus. No longer do we have two separate rooms, but instead have one great room with the table part of the kitchen.
My china hutch houses my Pyrex dishes as well as several platters I have collected over the years.
Here is the other side of the area near the table. Still playing around with how it will be when done. I love that anything goes when doing makeover and not applying any traditional expectations to the project. The hooks for this and the other photo were fashioned out of baling wire~as the farm provides pretty much anything I need!
