An old basket, some chalk paint & 20 minutes!!

I'm hoping to post a little bit of fall decor a few times a week this season...
Today it's BASKET makeover day!!  
I decided to revive a couple of baskets with some Annie Sloan French Linen and
 Americana Decor Everlasting...
It couldn't have been any quicker or easier...
Take a peek at the first one...

the before...
orangey and a bit dated!!
I used my MUCH LOVED Annie Sloan French Linen as the base and then did a quick dry brush of the Americana Decor Everlasting on top...
It's APPLE SEASON here in the Hudson Valley!!

Make sure to stop back tomorrow to see 
BASKET MAKEOVER #2!!

  2. Beautiful makeover! I love the color you chose and how the apples pop against it now! Chalk paint has come to my rescue time and time again, lol. Great job! Look forward to seeing more.
