Upcycled Shabby Basket

My late mother-in-law gave me this basket a few years ago.  It got a little beat up over time so I decided to give it a bit of a shabby chic makeover:
It was originally brown but I gave it a few coats of pink spray paint to soften it up.  Once the paint was dry I hot glued some vintage lace trim around it.  I am still debating on whether or not to do a no-sew basket liner.
While I'm trying to decide on the liner, I filled it with some white tea towels and some pretty fabric pieces from Fabric.com. 
I think the starfish really make the whole look!  It's sitting quite nicely in a corner in my kitchen.

Nice update! That front fabric looks like it would make for a great basket liner.

Love this sweet basket! That reminds me to go pull out my starfish. I'm so behind w/ seasonal decorating, I haven't even gotten out my patriotic stuff yet!
