Updated Basket

Good morning everyone!  Hope your doing well.....  I was just looking at the calendar and wondering how is summer going by SOOOO fast?!  I just want to sloooow down time...can't we just for a bit???  Summer is my favorite time of the year.  I love the bon fires, camping, boating, smores, summer evenings, ice cream runs and everything else that is associated with summer....

I recently found this small little basket that could by used for a variety of things.  Here is the before picture of it.....

I basically just dry brushed a light layer of aqua paint on it.  I like how it turned out but I really love how little time it took to transform the look of it.  Here's the after picture....



Have a great day.....and if you're reading....ThAnKs!!!
