If you are looking for furniture and are on a budget, Gwyneth is taking new clients. She specializes in eclectic cottage decor and considers pink a neutral. While always pleasant to work with, Gwyneth does ask clients to understand that if it looks like she’s sleeping on the job, she’s not. She’s letting the creative juices marinate. Gwyneth accepts payment in the form of treats, and her terms are net immediately.
Why is Gwyneth looking for new business? Although she and I have discussed it several times, Gwyneth refuses to accept that we are out of space for new Dumpster Dive finds. To show just how serious she is, Gwyneth made two discoveries in a period of 12 hours:
As you can see, the first oversized basket made it’s way up to our apartment, as did the second one Gwyneth discovered twelve hours later. As a compromise, we agreed that we would take on this project and somehow find space for it in the apartment. Then, Gwyneth will limit her Dumpster Diving for new clients only. Let us know if you’re interested!
So now that we have these two baskets in the apartment, what are we going to do with them? We’ve brainstormed a few ideas and would love to know what you think abou them, or if you have any others! Our first thought was to add legs and make a two tiered cart or side table like this one from Better Homes and Gardens:
Since the two-tiered option could require some carpentry that we have neither skills nor space for, we also discussed purchasing an X-Stand and making a large tray table instead like this one we saw on Pinterest (original source is unknown, sorry!):
With the tray table option, I suggested the leftover basket we’d have would make for amazing storage under the bed if we just added a set of wheels like this one sold at Pottery Barn:
Gwyneth then reminded me that it’s the season where we should be thinking of others instead of ourselves. Therefore, she thought we should definitely add wheels to the extra basket, but make an extra cozy Yorkie-sized trundle
bed master suite instead. Love how she’s always thinking of others.
So as you can see, we could use your thoughts on what to do with these baskets! Please let us know what you think! (And if you’d like to take advantage of Gwyneth’s services for yourself!)
