Painted Gray Basket

Well, I’m finally feeling like I’m human again, besides a cough I’m feeling ok and have some energy back. So upset when I came down with this cold because I had so
many projects planned.
I’m still trying to take it easy so the project I did today was very easy to do
but the change is noticeable. I made it for my bedroom to hold
magazines and it turned out just the way I wanted it to.

This is what it looked like, still in great shape for how old it is but
to orange looking for me.

I took pictures of it here because the lighting is so much better

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your get well comments!
I swear it made me feel better.

The basket is perfect now, and it looks like a nice sturdy one at that. Glad you are on the mend.

Glad you are feeling better. :) The basket is so pretty - soft and a beautiful accent, instead of too bold. Great job. :) Gentle Joy

The basket turned out great, Rondell! I never think of transforming baskets with paint. I have to remember this!

Your basket is so pretty and I love the chair it is sitting in :) I am trying to find a big covered basket--someday I will find the perfect one!

So glad that you're feeling better now. I've been sneezing a lot too but so far I'm ok. I love the new look you gave that basket! I love anything painted grey. I always forget that baskets can be painted. That's a great look.
