Quickies


quick basket makeovers
Nothing is more gratifying than a quickie basket makeover unless it is THREE basket makeovers.






Last Thursday was one of those rare January days with temps in the sixties and plenty of sunshine. 

I spent most of the day outside painting and sanding and sanding and painting.

Here's the class photo of the three baskets.







And here's how they started out.

A brand new can of Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze.












Fifteen minutes later the baskets were basking in the sun.












They were quite lovely, but needed some torn cotton ribbons for a fashion flair. 














For this small basket - a piece of vintage crochet.


















Last a basket perfect for a warm winter day picnic.













Enjoy your Sunday.


See y'all!

  15. I think we all love spray paint...it can change a whole room with just one little piece sprayed a different color...and it's so fast...
    I love the color of your baskets.
