Turn an Old Basket Into a French Antique Basket

We all have these brown baskets laying around, give them new life with some paint! Such an easy project with a big impact!
Old Basket
Americana Decor Chalky Finish (I used lace but any light color will do)
Dark Stain (I used Ebony by Min Wax)
Paint Brush
Grab a dry, flat brush and dip the bottom part of the bristles into the paint, making sure you don't have too much paint on the brush. With your brush, get into all the crevices of the basket, inside and out.
To antique the basket, stop by the blog
One basket took about 30 minutes!
