New Year – New Look!
When the Christmas decorations came down, I stared at my blank dining room walls and said to myself, “Kelly, you’re not a monk so liven up those walls asap and then I’ll give you some wine.”
I had myself at wine and in order to get it I had to listen to that little devil on my shoulder and add some personality to this blank slate so of course a basket gallery wall was in order.

I love collecting things slowly over time but an instant collection isn’t a bad thing either!
These baskets called to me from the HomeGoods clearance aisle so I decided to give them a good home.
They are hand woven African baskets from Ghana (except the blue one on the bottom right).
You can find a great selection of African baskets HERE or get a similar look by scooping up thrift store baskets.
I moved my favorite woven bench from my foyer (get the bench on sale HERE).
I love these hooks for hanging the baskets. Just poke the hook right through the basket. Bonus – no holes in the wall!
I just realized my vintage brass elephant will feel right at home among these African baskets!
My dining room is right off my foyer so anyone who comes through my front door will be greeted with this colorful wall that shows off my personality.
Changes galore have been happening in this room … so long curtains and my pine hutch that I sold on Facebook (see how I sell my unwanted stuff on Facebook HERE), wood wine cubbies are no more and my metal cabinet moved to the other side of the room (whew, I do need that wine).
Plus one of my dining chairs broke (it’s not the first time but this time it’s unfixable) so I’m on the hunt for replacements.
