What's Really in the Basket

6.04.2012

Yesterday I shared my ironstone with you that I staged in my new basket tray. Now I will show you what is really in the basket. I took these pictures as the sun was setting and it cast some shadows. I also painted the sunroom coffee table with ASCP in Paris Gray. I was not loving the shiny white anymore.



I got this giant shell last year at the antique mall. I love the size of this one.



Two lavender filled sachets also from Ann.









Before I painted.

I only did one coat of Paris Gray followed by some clear wax. I liked some of the white still showing.

Well, I have Leila half a day and then I go to the dentist. Fun fun.
Happy Monday!

  1. Love your new table color, Kim. The trays make wonderful display areas. I find things like that are easier to pick up and put higher before little hands come to visit.

  31. looks beautiful and I love the name of the paint, Paris Grey,, the shells add a touch of nature and I think every room needs that, ha ha, but really the shells have such a soft color palette and blend so well with your whites and soft greys,
