Yep. Another picnic basket! All the others that I took to my booth at Stars have SOLD.
ACK! Alas, my excitement was short-lived when I pulled it from the shelf to find it emblazoned with the NIKE logo. sigh. Put it back or take it home and try to sand off the ‘branded’ logo. (it appears to be ‘wood burned’)
The ‘innards’ were clean and in good shape; and the price was right, so I went ahead and bought it. Figured if I couldn’t REMOVE the Nike logo, I could always paint over it. (although I REALLY was hoping to leave this one its original color)
I added a fresh coat of stain to the entire top to even out the color. “I” still notice that it’s lighter, but I don’t think other will really notice. Decided that a coat of varnish might even it out a bit more, so I added that AFTER I took this picture.
It was REALLY difficult for me to restrain myself from painting something on the lid! But I managed to leave it ‘as is’.
