Just a quickie chalk paint project. I just finished up a master bedroom for clients in NC. She needed a wastebasket for the side of her secretary, but we didn’t really find one when out shopping for a few items. When we got back, she said to me, “well I will just use this for now.” It was a very inexpensive and unfinished wood basket, so I said I would paint it and see if it will work. Nothing to lose as we already had chalk paint (Annie Sloan Old White) and wax. I was going for an old hand painted look, kinda French looking. I lightly sanded the edges and sides and went from there.
I enjoy quick projects like these. Chalk paint dries quickly, very quickly, so you can do smaller items like this in no time. I look forward to sharing this design project with you very soon. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Laters, charisse
