I'd been wanting to add a little green to balance out our family room, but all the trees I'd been eyeing at the stores were all $40 or more. Crazy! So, luckily I found this thing for $1 at a garage sale this summer, and I finally got around to taking care of it. The basket was an ugly brown, so I spray painted it black. Then I got some pretty green moss for $2 and hot glued it to the bottom. Last, I Lysol sprayed all the leaves and now they have a pretty shine. Our family room is still not totally put together, but little by little its getting there.
