Old metal egg baskets are perfect for allowing the air to circulate over whatever is being held inside them making them slightly more versatile than you might first consider. These baskets are capable of making a display out of fruit, vegetables, dried flowers or just about any other object you can think of.
The older nature of the metal itself can provide plenty of decorative appeal with some baskets made from copper colored wire or brass wire. It is surprising the number of simple items that were in common use around the house in past eras that are not only being considered for use but are also providing wonderful features of interest. Decorating with antique metal egg baskets is a simple concept but in doing so you are completing the overall theme of a room and rather than stand out awkwardly, in the right room, it will mean the difference between a completed look and a room that is somehow unfinished.
Decorative Ideas For Your Vintage Wire Egg Baskets
As we know, decorating the kitchen or country dining room with antique wire egg baskets makes for an interesting and more creative display. There are a number of different ways in which they can be used, particularly if you want to take advantage of the variety of designs that can be found. With differences such as the fact that some baskets come with tall handles while others have no handles, multiple baskets may be used together.
The advantages of vintage wire egg baskets are their versatility and ability to add the right touch to a room. There is the chance that some of the older wire baskets may have a little rust on them but they can be cleaned up to maintain a rustic look. Adding a flower pot with some daisies or silk flowers can turn them into a table centerpiece for formal or informal dinners and gatherings.
Another idea is to find some salt and pepper shakers in an older style. Adding them to the center is an easy way to create a storage space on the table. Add a touch of colored ribbon for each new season or holiday. This is an easy way to change a table layout.
For a cleaner look an old rusty item can be painted any color the decorator desires. White looks good in a country kitchen. Black will look good in rooms with iron drawer and door handles. Other popular colors for a kitchen or dining area include red, green, brown, or teal. Adding a modern color gives the piece a modern feel.
For a bare wall, collect models in different styles. This is an easy way to add interest to a wall without spending hundreds of dollars on art work. With an interesting fabric liner, the object can hold loaves of round bread, muffins, and other baked goods. Antique wire egg baskets that are taller can hold cooking utensils. Adding a little nest of raffia and a couple plastic eggs gives the items a classic look. More creative uses include holding shampoos or bath products in a rustic bathroom.
An old fashioned wire egg basket would also be a wonderful idea for the storage or presentation of Easter Eggs. Anyone who is planning on surprising the family with something a little different might like to take a cheap wire egg basket and fill it will colored Easter Eggs to delight everyone.
These are merely a few of the creative ways of decorating with antique metal egg baskets in such a way that they add to the ambiance and style of the home.
