White Painted Baskets


Wisteria is showing these white dipped baskets....
 and I'm loving them...
so I got some large willow baskets from the thrift store...


wrapped some painters tape around them...



and started painting....






Then hung them on a tree to dry...



I took the tape off and touched up my "straight" 
line a little bit with a thin brush.



The white bottoms instantly turned my thrift store baskets into something special...

And now they're hanging from a beam in my kitchen. 



Don't those white bottoms look great from down here?

  3. It's still so lush and green where you live! Love the basket idea. Can imagine taking this in many directions. Red, white and blue for national holidays. Red and green for Christmas and so on....
