Easy DIY Crated Demijohn

9.13.2014

I love when an idea pops in my head to create something that I have had my eye on for awhile, but can't take the plunge to pay for.


Y'all know I love and collect demijohns, but I have always loved the large ones that come in the basket they were used to ship in. Only problem most of them cost big bucks that I haven't forked out.


So when I took this large amber demijohn that I purchased in France last year...

....and this large old bushel basket from a local antique mall that I actually had different plans for...

with its wonderful old wooden bottom...

and its cool details and large size....

The two together became my version of a crated demijohn. The large bushel basket was only $22 and I already had the large bottle/demijohn.

  Now I have the look I love for way less.

Check out my Pinterest Board for more demijohns.

Happy Saturday!

  3. That is a wonderful look. I like the contrast between the smooth, sleek glass and the rough, rustic basket a lot.

    P.S. My daughter just started French 1 in high school. I am so happy (I was pretty sure she was going to take Spanish). She is even speaking about learning abroad in France for a year when she goes to college. I will HAVE TO take a couple of trips to check up on her! wink
