Baskets are the perfect decor accessory. I use mine all over my house, in practically every room.
I find that even the large baskets at HomeGoods are kind of expensive. It’s way better to keep your eye out while at the thrift store or estate sale and add some paint to give a basket more style.
I lightly brushed Annie Sloan Old White onto this vintage basket.
This basket was already painted when I purchased it. My daughter, Ella painted a few bits and pieces of old furniture I had lying around my workroom and placed them inside – kind of fun! And, the basket in my family room is perfect to store the sofa throw blankets.The weather has broken and I can actually breath in my garage! I’m starting on the large dresser I purchased a few weeks ago and can’t wait to get going 🙂
Your home is so lovely! Looks very welcoming. I’m on the search for a warm grey for my walls, and was wondering if you could tell me the name of the paint on your walls above, please? It looks perfect! Whether I could get our paint tinted in an American colour is a whole other question, but maybe…..???
Thanks very much, Liz.
Hi Elisabeth! So great to hear from you! The paint color is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. I really love it and have it in my dining room as well. Cheers!
One of my favorite things:)…baskets. And you’re right, I think the hunt of finding something great at the thrift store, estate sale is way more fun. I found a great old basket once for 2$! It sits in my guest bath holding towels. Priceless. Can’t wait to see the chest you’re working on. Mimi
I love baskets, and you have gorgeous ones. I also love how you have them displayed
Thank you, Ivory!
