Refashioned Laundry Hamper

It started out life like this...

I thought at worst I could use the wooden frame for something.

So I started out by taking off the fabric and staining the wooden frame with a vinegar and steel wool solution.

You can see it working the minute it touches the raw wood.

(wear rubber gloves... it also antiques your hands....)

It's looking better already! 

The antiqued color change is amazing!

Much to my delight the fabric under the baby design was this beautifully textured, off white fabric.

The possibilities at this point were endless but I had a piece leftover from my French Striped Candle project, so I'm going with that.

I stamped on the #12 and attached it to the bag.

So much better!

The antiqued wood and the textured bag...
Couldn't be a better freebie!
