White Painted Baskets

6:00:00 AM

I am loving the baskets with the white painted bottoms they are showing in all the catalogs this year. 

So I'm taking it upon myself to create some of my own.  

I bought large willow baskets from the thrift store and
wrapped some painters tape around them.

then started painting.

I hung them on a tree to dry.

I took the tape off and just quickly 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.
