When my grandmother passed away earlier this year, she made sure each of her children and grandchildren were given something from her.
Me, well I got this really neat vintage basket.
The only problem was the color.
It just is NOT me.
Now, I did think about what I would do with the basket.
It is large and heavy duty, perfect for storing whatnot's.
But, I just could not bring myself to use it.
This weekend I was in the garage painting all of my new treasures.
Of course, while I am waiting for one project to dry, I tend to wander around with paint brush in hand looking for something else to paint.
I spotted the basket.
So I did. I painted it!
Now before you get all upset about me painting a treasure from my grandmother, you must know
Grandma was notorious for using what you have.
The basket had already been painted once.
I think she would have approved of my inner slipcover, being an amazing slipcoverer that she was.
why have something in the garage because you don't like the color when you can paint it, make it even more pretty with some fabric and ruffles and bring it in the house.
I just love my new/old basket.
So, what are you waiting for?
GO PAINT IT, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!
That's for all you out there who delay. Do so no longer.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are all having a great weekend.
