I have shown y'all the new look of the great room, foyer, and stair landing since painting the walls the new color. There was one last change.
After painting I wasn't going to put anything under this plate rack since I moved the chest to the great room, but then a light went on in my head and I grabbed the large vintage basket on the bottom from the guest room and the smaller one from the master.
I love these old baskets stacked.
Before with chest and old paint color. This is the chest I moved to the great room.
I switched up a few pieces of the ironstone borrowing some from the china cabinet in the dining room.
The large basket on the bottom was found in a shop in Amelia Island, Florida many years ago. The owner said it was a vintage hamper from Provence. You can see how it is made with sticks and wire.
I must have been into patina years ago without even thinking about it. I purchased this before I even knew to love French country style.
I think this is still my favorite ironstone piece with all the crazing and a chip here and there.
The smaller basket was bought at Scott Antique Market in Atlanta last year. The strap is broken, but that is fine with me. The price was good.
Somehow ironstone and wicker just go together and it all looks better with the new wall color.
I took this picture of miss Bailey while I was shooting the other pics. She loves laying in the morning sun on the back of the sofa in the sitting room.
Have a super week!
