I found this basket last November at a church sale for $3.00, a nice sized one too!
I’ve always wanted to paint it so today after getting the girls on the bus after a 2 hour delay ( because it was about 8 degrees this morning ) I came home and started on it. I used the rest of the Paris Grey, well maybe I have enough to paint an urn that I found there too!
I think it turned out really nice!
This is what it looked like before, it’s plastic lined so I guess you could put a large plant in it if you wanted to but I kill plants so I won’t be doing that!
I’m keeping it in my office, gee, it sounds so good to write that.:) Right now I have my burlap stored in it.
Here is a close up, I just dry brushed it on letting some of the finish show thru ASCP just went on so smoothly too!
Now here is the sweetest lamp ever that I bought to go on the desk, whenever I get that started, they have a 2 hour delay tomorrow too!
Isn’t he/her the cutest, love his/her face!
The shade is burlap and I found him at Burlington for $25.99, I didn’t think that was a bad price for both the lamp and the shade!
The taller lamp is just to big for the desk, you can see it on the floor back there. Yes, I still have to do the trim in white, maybe once I get the room going I’ll get it done, It’s like #1,000 on my to do list:)
Here’s the desk that I found in a dumpster when the college here was done for the summer, the best thing is that it was free!
The girl that used it and thur it away must have been an art major don’t you think? I have it all sanded and I’m going to prime it because the top is some sort of laminate plus all the magic marker art too. I have a quart of gray paint that I bought a while ago so I’m using what I have. I’d like to find some neat hardware for it also!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great evening!
I’ll be joining these parties:
