I got carried away and started painting this one before taking my "before'' picture. You can see it as a long, oval shaped basket.
It was a light straw color.
I wanted it to have a Tuscan farmhouse look. First I spray painted it black and then I dry brushed on some brown craft paint.
Here is the next "before" I thought this was a really cute little basket. Unfortunately what this photo doesn't show is the basket was a very orangey brown color.
I decided to give this one a beachy look.
This basket took six different paint applications before I got it to look the way I wanted it too. Luckily I like to paint.
The final basket. I really liked the metal on the bottom of this one.
The top however also had a very orangey tone to it.
