This month's Pinterest Challenge is so pretty for a cottage-style vignette. You may find that you already own things to recreate the look. Even a regular basket would work. I purchased this picnic basket several years at my local thrift store. I created this new finish for it that I'll be sharing in next month's thrift store makeover. It's another quick and easy project!
Welcome to another installment of our monthly Pinterest Challenges hosted by my sweet friend, Cindy, from County Road 407.
This month for our Pinterest Challenge, we are recreating this lovely cottage basket look from one of my favorite blogs, Anderson and Grant. Be sure to give the blog a visit. I love this idea! I created my own look using similar elements.
If you are visiting from Decor to Adore, welcome! Laura's home and decor projects are always stunning. I always leave inspired.
MY TAKEAWAY OF THE ELEMENTS USED
- taller basket with rectangular or oval shape
A Pinterest Challenge doesn't get much simpler than this one. While it is a simple look to duplicate, it's big on vintage and cottage style.
Not only did the basket get a really quick makeover for this month's challenge, it motivated me to start decorating the screened porch.
Fortunately for me and this post, my husband got the front and back porches cleaned of all the pollen and winter gunk for me. I normally do this task, but he took it upon himself to do it. It totally made my week. I've been busy painting the guest bedroom. It's a major job with wall color and trim. I have 2 walls completed and 1 last coat of trim before I can move onto another wall.
Can I just say that this post got me distracted and cost me money! LOL!
I've been wanting a new rug for the sitting area in the middle of the screened porch. The one there is just too busy. So I got distracted while decorating the space and plopped right down on the porch with my laptop and started shopping. My new rug is due in today! I'll be featuring it on an upcoming tour. You can see it HERE. I ordered the 6×9 size.
Uses for Picnic Baskets
- floral arrangement
- a picnic!
- holding blankets
- elevate something in a vignette
I am really loving how the new finish on the basket turned out. It definitely has a cottage look on my vintage basket.
The quilt was on Ashlyn's bed when she had a more cottage look. It's so classic that I just couldn't get rid of it. This is the first time that it has been used since it was packed up about 5 years ago.
Up next on the tour is my friend, Cindy, from DIY Beautify. Be sure to hop on over there for a visit.
