I purchased a wicker lamp shade for $1.00 at a garage sale, but when I got home, it didn't work for any lamps in my home. I figured, I'd just donate it to Goodwill, until I came up with a repurposing idea.
When I flipped it upside down, it made the perfect little waste basket. I teach piano lessons and keep tissues on the piano for little noses. This is just the size to put under the piano to collect the used tissues and trash.
I recycle my Walmart bags as liners.
Now I'm glad I bought it.
