I love it! I'm so glad I got this, it may be one of my favorite home decor purchases! I took my hydrangeas from the fireplace and just put them on the table for now. I'll try to find something else to put here later. I had candles burning in my fireplace last night... I wanted some fireplace ambiance and it isn't quite cold enough for a fire yet.
I put a big screw in the wall and tied some rope around part of the basket at the top and just hung the rope on the screw. It seems sturdy enough that it should hold.
I called Lowe's today to try to order a new front door for the living room, but the guy didn't know how to find the door I was looking for. Guess I'll have to run down there tonight or some other time and try to talk to someone in person to get things done. The door will be glass so it will let more light in, I don't like how dark my living room feels when the door is closed, I usually keep it open so I can get light from my storm door.
I don't like my mantle decor anymore, I need to change that out. I never did switch it to fall decor. I don't even have any fall decor to decorate it with. I didn't move in until November, so fall was pretty much over by the time I got in. If you look real close at the picture, you can see where I accidentally left the screw driver and tape measure on the left side of the mantle from where I was putting up the basket. oops
