Farmhouse Basket

by - July 26, 2011

**Thank you to everyone who let me know it was Michele Raven Designs blog that I drew my inspiration from!**

I can't for the life of me remember which blog showed a beautiful farmhouse basket with a stenciled number on it.  If that's you, please drop me a note and let me know as you are the inspiration for this post!

I picked up this basket at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago.  Once I saw the other blogger's basket redo, I knew it was exactly what I wanted to do with mine:

I gave it a light coat of white spray paint.  Once that was dried, I used a stencil and black paint to add my number 4.  Two is my favorite number but I couldn't find my 2 stencil so when my boys asked me why I did the number 4, I said because there's 4 of us here.  That seemed to satisfy them.

I haven't found a permanent place for it yet but I am loving how it turned out.  So to that other blogger, I say thank you!

    Is that where you saw it?

  5. Love it! A couple years ago I took a rectangle basket for years and gave it a coat of white and stenciled 822 on it, for our wedding anniversary, Aug. 22. I know you didn't get your idea from mine, but just wanted you to know that I love that look, too! But now that I see yours, I'd like to do another basket with just one number on it. Very cool!


  6. Hey Jeanine, love the shape of that basket and the cool handle on it! The number just adds another layer of vintage goodness!!
