Old Flower Basket to Magazine Rack

Happy Tuesday everyone!
I am currently taking my Re-finishing 101. I am not talking about attending a home economics class. I am talking about DIY refinishing and refurbishing some stuff around the house like this flower basket I bought from a thrift store.


Before
After

I had nowhere to put my magazines, so the moment I saw this basket in it's state, I saw the possibility for magazine rack!

The red color did not appeal to me, so I painted it white.



 I decided to decorate it with burlap, wrap the handles with hemp string, and painted the word Paris!

Now, I have to back to my big project. Off to work I go!

Have a wonderful day!

  7. Simply lovely! Although I love red, I have to say I like it in the new form better. Light, bright and ready for spring.
