B is for Basket

This pretty basket is a re-do of a re-do.  I bought it at a garage sale last year and painted it white.  It, unfortunately, got a little dirty in the tea room thanks to a little birdy (use your imagination!) so I redid it over the weekend using Annie Sloan chalk paint in Antoinette:
I only did one coat because I wanted a shabby chic feel to it.
The B stencil is from Michael's. I tied it on with some twine.  B is the first letter of our last name so I thought it would make for a nice touch.
Here it is in a corner of our guest room.  I'm not sure if the Keep Calm and Carry on pillow will stay in there.  I'm thinking of adding some book stacks instead.
