I hope everyone had a great New Years! Â I’m certainly ready for 2015 what about you? Â Thank you to all of you who followed us in 2014 (even though we just started in September) 2015 will be even better!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today I’m going to show you a wicker basket makeover project I did at the beginning of winter but didn’t have time to post during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Â I got this brown wicker basket on clearance at Hobby Lobby a year or two ago for next to nothing….
I loved it because it was so deep and sturdy, and could hold a lot of stuff, but it’s not too tall on the sides and can fit on most shelves. Â I had it sitting on the top of our laundry room shelf for a year, holding a bunch of junk we didn’t need. Â So in my EXTREME nesting period during my pregnancy, I of course ended up with this empty basket. Â It didn’t really match the rest of my house but I thought it would be a great way to discretely store a bunch toys under the coffee table. Â SO, I decided to paint it! Â I grabbed my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen and slapped on a very thin layer of paint and it was a totally new basket in a matter of minutes…
