Painted it cinnamon and stuck in the lantana while they were blooming.
Read Mad For Madison HERE.
Then painted it walnut and took the hand sander to it for a distressed fall look.
I left the reverse side in perfect walnut for those who may not like it distressed.
It will be making the journey to the booth.
I have had this basket for years.
Always part of the fall decor.
Decided to change it up this year.
Spray painted with Krylon Chalky Finish in Slate.
It now has a fresh new attitude.
I was thinking a gray basket with rolled burlap bags was the way to go.
So I hopped in the car to Tractor Supply to get a bunch more ...
THE PUMPKIN STAND WAS OPEN!!!!
So all my plans changed as I perused the small white and orange pumpkins.
And the multitudes of mums.
Much, much better than plain old burlap bags.
Remember the ugly white basket from Friday Finds?
Well, to be completely honest, it was actually even uglier than I showed.
There was a horrific painted rose on this side.
So horrifying I just could not show the photo in case someone fainted.
Krylon ColorMaster in Ocean Breeze.
Just one coat!
The crown was the wrong color.
Rust-Oleum in Heirloom White.
It is large enough to use for wispy drapes of lace over a twin or full bed.
Proof I am still cleaning.
I removed all the covers on the sofa cushions and threw them in the washer while I vacuumed the life from the sofa.
All the cushions were thrown out in the yard during a brief sunny spell.
I have at least three truckloads of items to tag for the booth and photograph for Etsy.
I'd better get busy.
