FR Faves: Affordable Custom Frames, Sturdy and Stylish Patio Chairs, Plaid Belly Baskets and a Basketweave Lamp

Diamond Seagrass Belly Basket by Container Store

I love the casual, slouchy feel of belly baskets.  Their shape and woven texture make them perfect for tucking in random corners to hold blankets, books or even smaller trinkets like TV remotes and jewelry.  This Diamond Seagrass Belly Basket from Container Store has a cool plaid pattern in white and straw.  It's extra-large in size and would be great for displaying a fiddle leaf fig or other houseplant.  And the best part?  It's a stylish steal at $14.99!  

Affordable Custom Frames by Frame It Easy

I'm always in the market for frames...and because I'm framing vintage textiles or kid art, I usually need an odd, non-standard frame size.  But I've found that those can be pretty expensive.  Enter Frame It Easy!  Frame It Easy is a great website that offers up a variety of frame styles, all customizable by size.  They offer add-ons like non-glare acrylic, custom mats and more.  And their frames cost a fraction of the price of other websites I've tried!  They make it very easy to design the exact frame you want and need...after entering a few measurements and choosing your style, you're good to go!  They'll even print your photos/art and frame them for you.  I recently framed a vintage tapestry and a collage my daughter made.  The frames shipped quickly and look amazing on the wall.  Gotta love an affordable one-stop framing shop!

Threshold Afton X-Back Patio Chair by Target

I've been slowly refreshing my patio space this summer.  Our "grilling porch" is where we do all our outdoor dining and we needed a better set-up.  I was trying to stay within a specific budget, so I nearly swooned when I saw these Threshold Afton X-Back Chairs from Target.  They're sturdy, stackable and stylish...and at $49 each, they won't break the bank when you compare them to many patio dining sets!  The X-back detailing adds some rustic charm, but the black iron finish keeps them feeling fresh and modern.  They also come in white and off-white.  These are selling fast, so now's the time to grab them!

Basketweave Lamp by Lamps Plus

I've been searching for a fun accent lamp for my office and wasn't having any luck.  I stumbled across this Basketweave Lamp from Lamps Plus the other day and haven't been able to stop thinking about it (is that weird?).  I love the cut-outs against the crisp white finish.  I think it would be a great complement to the cool gray walls in my office...I may have to add this to my cart soon!
