Wooden Easter Basket and a Transfer

I thrifted an adorable wooden basket today...

and made it even better by painting the
center strip with Old White
Annie Sloan chalk paint.

I printed out a French candy image from the 
Graphics Fairy in reverse.  Using Modge Podge
I coated the printed side of the paper. I let it dry
completely then wet the paper slightly and rubbed off
the paper leaving the image on the basket.

Don't rub too hard at the end or you may rub off
parts of the image.  When it dried again you could
still see a slight film of paper. I wet it and gently rubbed off the remaining film. I dried the image then distressed the 
painted stripe then gave the whole center stripe a 
coat of matte varnish.

To me... it is the perfect 
Easter Basket.

Happy Easter Everyone!
