Basket Change

Hello sweet friends, I hope all is well and you’re keeping busy.  I have been a painting machine lately.  Reeses and Peanut are worried they may get painted next, these sweet faces!!


Today, I’m sharing a small change I made to a lavender plant I purchased from Antique Farmhouse and I’m loving the quick change.

I decided I wanted the basket to have a French look, so I dry brushed it using Jolie paint in Swedish Grey, it took minutes.



Finding new pieces while thrifting before the virus took hold, I moved a few pieces around as I wait for warmer temperatures to paint outside, it’s still rather chilly in NJ as well as rainy.

I have had a set of antique shutters I purchased from Rustic Garden when we moved to our home, love adding old pieces to a brand new home to add character.  

My shutter found a new home next to our buffet in our great room.  The buffet will be receiving an overdo painting update I have been wanting for a while. This will lead to the domino affect, change the color of one piece and others need updating, ha, ha.. 


Originally the lavender was purchased for a different place in the house but that is for another post coming soon so stay tuned.  I think you will enjoy my DIY!

Adding a gilded crown with gingham ribbon adds a touch of interest.


Have you been rearranging to get a new look?
