Here is a quick little redesign I wanted to share. As much as I love working on furniture, I really enjoy giving small items more character. As soon as I saw this basket, I knew what I wanted to do with it.
This is how I found it. I pick these up at garage sales, thrift stores, and flea markets all the time. They're great for corralling items. This one I wanted to make pretty.
After adding my roses, I slathered on several thick coats of gesso. I liked the cracked white plaster look, so I didn't do a wash.
A great way to give an ordinary basket a little shabby character. I'm going to be doing a larger version of this with a different design and finish.
