Easter Basket

7:35:00 AM

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!

  1. I love this, Susan! What a great caddy and I love the "eggs" label you put on it. Love Duck Egg ~ I did my dresser in that color a couple of years ago {shortly after we had moved}. I still love how it looks.

  2. Love the colors you used and that paper label is such a cute accent!

  3. I'm with you, Susan! I have a lovely new can of Duck Egg myself just waiting for me to match up with the perfect project! Yours is super cute!

  4. That is a great color and so perfect for an Easter basket! Love, love, love the brass label on it!
    Happy Easter!!

  5. Put on your Easter bonnet, with all the trimmings on it, because I'm sure it will be as cute as your basket.

    Easter Blessings,
