Basket Walls- the easy DIY home decor trend that’s taking over your home selfies

By Felicia Czochanski

It’s likely you’ve been spending a lot more time at home than usual, but now is a great time to get started on all those home improvement projects and spring cleaning days “” if not now, then when?

After all, when spending most of your day in your primary space, it can only help boost morale to spruce things up a bit. That’s exactly what a ton of Goodwill thrifters have done, and they documented their progress on their Instagram feeds.

If you haven’t heard of the #BasketWall, you’re not alone. I started seeing posts of basket walls last winter, when people were starting to redecorate for the warmer seasons, but the #BasketWall inspiration that can be found on social media has spread at an incredible rate, and in almost every picture at least one basket is tagged as a Goodwill find!

I love a few things about this home decor trend, but especially how accessible it is and how it can really change the look of a space. It’s likely you have a basket or a woven placemat already lying around your home that can be repurposed for the task. If not, finding one second hand isn’t difficult to do. With more earthy and bohemian home decor styles growing in popularity, switching up your wall art to incorporate baskets of different shapes, shades and sizes can do a lot for your home aesthetic. And when life starts feeling monotonous, why not implement a little do-it-yourself change to your living area?

I love seeing the different ways people have set up their basket walls. There are so many creative ways to organize them, depending on how many baskets you have to work with, or if you want to integrate different media along with them, like plants or mirrors as seen in some of the photos above. I’ve seen other creative walls that incorporate fun broad-brimmed hats into the mix as well, creating a truly boho look.

If revamping your living area helps you get through this spring, set some time aside and go for it! Find your nearest Ohio Valley Goodwill store for those baskets today!
