Quickies


quick basket makeover
Nothing quicker than a basket makeover.

Mostly it is just adding a bit of personality to an average Jane basket.





Take one oak split basket - obviously handmade, but not signed.










Spray it white leaving a bit of the oak showing through.














Mod Podge some hydrangea images (courtesy of  The Graphics Fairy) to the lid.








Okay, so they were too bright and clean for distressed me.












Sanded with a fine sanding sponge.
















Tied some twine through a large vintage button.

Used E-6000 to glue onto the rim.










 The final result.
















Ready to store a bunch of supplies.

What have you transformed today?






 
See y'all!
