Chalk Clay Painted Apple Basket

First try at painting an apple basket. 


Looked pretty well used up on first glance


White washed outside then painted the bands.


Added three stars, traced with felt pen and painted with a 1/4" brush, wiped off a bit of color (sanding just spread the color onto the white areas).


Waxed and polished bands and stars.


Display for greenery, plant holder, blanket storage...

Thanks for visiting.
See you again Monday.

  3. Cute idea! Those old baskets always look so worn. I guess they are probably left outside a lot of the time. You did a great job. So many uses for it!

  16. You did a great job bringing this basket to life Joy! I have to admit, while visiting the Share It One More Time Party, the Canadian flag draped on top caught my eye, eh.
