Happy September! Can you believe it’s SEPT-EM-BER? Whattttt? I know we say this every year, but it amazes me how time flies. I couldn’t be happier that Fall is in the air. I know it’s still early, but I’m anxiously waiting to decorate the house! It’s September now, can I?
Over this summer, I made a couple trips to the upper peninsula of Michigan. Have you been? No? GO! It’s a magical place. Anyways, one thing I love to do there is thrift. I will sometimes give my mom a “look for” list as she resides up there all summer and she always surprises me with her finds! I’ll always get a picture from her showing all the goodies she found me. Thank you mama. Some girlfriends and I were up there when I found these lovely baskets.
One friend, rolled her eyes at my purchase. Oh, you just wait GF, see what I do! LOL Oh, did I mention, they were a quarter?! Get OUTTT.
This idea was inspired by Penny Love Projects. She did some numbered baskets for her booth and if I was closer to her booth, I would have ran and bought them!
First, I gave them a quick spray of matted black paint.
I grabbed some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, a stencil brush and stencils.
I like the black and white contrast! Really diggin’ B & W lately.
I stacked the baskets on the wall from smallest to large. We have tall ceilings in our living room so this worked great in there!
How fun! And, I love that I took someone’s unused baskets and turned them into something I love!
