Found these old baskets at a recent rummage sale. They’re fine as they are. But I like to add some ‘oomph’ when I can. So I decided to ‘dry brush’ them white.
Just ‘barely’ load your brush with paint, then wipe some off so your brush is almost dry. Then using a very light touch, brush the paint onto the baskets. The paint will only hit the ‘high spots’ of the basket, creating a nice shabby chic contrast.
Just right for a softer spring look! These 2 baskets just happened to both be a light color or begin with. The dark, more primitive baskets can be dry brush painted just as well.
It literally takes just MINUTES to fry brush paint a basket like this. Got any old tired baskets YOU need to update?!?
