A Good Deal

6.09.2012

I was hesitant about ordering a couple of vintage style metal baskets. I figured they would not be very good quality and just be some kind of thin plain metal. I mean two baskets for $42 couldn't be very good quality, right? Boy, was I wrong and so glad I went ahead and ordered them. They are from Antique Farmhouse, the sister company to Decor Steals. Both of these are daily deal sites.


This is the large one and I love it. It is a great heavy duty galvanized metal. Perfect for my magazines or towels in the bathroom would work, too.

You can see how it is chippy and worn in spots.

I placed the smaller one on the table and just stuck the box holding greenery down in it. Perfect fit.

You would expect to pay $42 for just one basket so I feel like I got a very good deal.

Have a marvey weekend!


I am not compensated in any way by these companies.

  1. They both look huge, Kim. I love the one you put on your table with the box in it. That's a great look. I've been being good the past couple of weeks.

  9. I have an extreme sickness when it comes to wire baskets. I can rarely pass one up. They seem to be getting more and more expensive. These were a great deal! Thanks for sharing.

  15. That is just so funny. I almost bought these same baskets from them. I love perusing their site. I am hoping my online shop will carry some equally wonderful products and prices, too. I did not know about their sister store I will check it out. Love how you used them both.

  21. I love your new wire baskets! You will find endless uses for them, I'm sure. I have only been disappointed by one thing that I bought from Decor Steals back when it was Wuslu. It looked cheap after receiving it. So I just sold it at the consignment store. I'm more careful now. Glad that your baskets were as nice as you hoped. I've had good luck with Antique Farmhouse too.

  34. OH my..we just say these on Decor steals last night. Nikki and I were debating on whether to buy them!
    We just bought the pillow the day before from there!
    how funny.
    They look even better than I thought!
    wondering if I should get them?
    happy weekend

  35. Hi Kim,
    Great finds! If you are really looking to save money, our Marshall's has wire boxes in a number of sizes. They're all a dark brown, but I imagine you could age them with some ASCP! They're in the $8 range and are so cute, even though lighter weight than yours. I have baskets coming out of my ears right now, so I'm going to abstain. :)
