Pottery Barn Inspired Hamper


I love this hamper from Pottery Barn


and I love this one too!

The price on the first one is a bit high and the second one is currently sold out.

Soooo...
I was out at Ross one day and I found this hamper you see below

not an exact match, but close enough.
I thought that maybe I could fix it up a bit and make a new liner for it...kind of like a cross between the two hampers.

I took out the original nylon liner and painted the wire basket black.
Then I used the liner as a pattern and made a new one with blue striped ticking fabric.

and now I have a brand new Pottery Barn {sort of} look alike!
For about $14 including all the fabric...not too bad!

Have a great weekend.
xo and God Bless,
Kathleen
