Wonderful New Find

Recently, while working my space at Winnie and Tulula's I spied these beauties.
Gloria said they are grape picking baskets from France. She brought them back from her recent European Buying trip.

Well I fell in love with them, and later thought of the perfect use for one.

I love the side strapping. I can't decide if I want to clear coat it or not. What do you think?

Doesn't it look fabulous for holding fire wood. I know it's August, but Fall and Winter are just around the corner. One can never be too prepared :)
I know I've been a little MIA but life has been getting in the way a bit. I have found some fun treasures and will post them soon. Stay Tuned.

Oh I love those!!! I would leave it as is too. Since it doesn't appear to have flaky lead paint, I wouldn't coat it.
