Thrifted oval wicker trunk.
Thrifted wood slat picnic basket with cheesy PLASTIC eagle emblem, and solid wood top.
Removing the eagle was harder than I thought. A bit of collateral damage to cover up some how.
I ‘dry brush’ painted both baskets. LOVE dry brushing! Love how it looks AND how quick and easy it is to do! Took maybe a whole 15 minutes to paint each basket. My remedy for the damage from removing the eagle was to glue on a wood star and tie a strip of tea stained muslin around it.
Both baskets are for sale in my booth at Stars:
This oval one would actually make a nice little coffee table by adding a tray to the top.
Another wood slat basket with an open top, that I’ve had for a while atop the lidded one I just painted.
