This is how the basket started out. It is the same one I used last year.
The paints came out. First I did a coat of Shutter Gray Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint and it just wasn't the right look so next was a coat of Pure White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I also brushed it over the welcome tag. Then dark wax was brushed over the basket.
Then I went over the WELCOME tag with black and then gold Gilders Paste. Such a quick an easy way to update this plain brown basket.
Summer plants are still thriving right now, but soon pumpkins will replace them. Cornstalks may be used too since we grew our own this year. Might as well recycle them.
I picked up the new black door mat at the store, Tuesday Morning, when I was out with my mom and sister last Monday. They are only $9.99. They also have the real vintage olive buckets for only $49. So go check out your Tuesday Morning store if you have one.
