Easter Basket

This may be my new favorite Annie Sloan chalk paint color....

Duck Egg... with dark wax!

I painted a thrift store crate with Duck Egg, then waxed with dark wax. I wanted a very aged look with darker corners.
I added a little brass bling for Easter...

I left the handle natural wood...

This is truly an awesome spring color, 
clear waxed for a lighter look or dark wax for age.

And those newsprint eggs... check out the DIY!
