Wood Wednesday: Woven Wood

I'm sorry! I thought this was posted on Wednesday.  I guess I was so excited about being a Guest Star that I just didn't post the Wood Wednesday. Enjoy my Woven Wood! 

I was so busy last week finishing all my projects and having my sale, this week I have just been lazy. On my trash hunting trip through town today, I did find some good boards but no furniture. I am trying to put things away (company arrives in 10 days) but I am just not into it. I want to create not clean up.

The one thing that keeps getting my attention is Easter baskets. I have collected a lot of woven baskets. I have had some of them for years. In fact some went through the flood and are a little worse for wear.

So I decided that I would just paint them. First I spray painted them is colors that I had bought on sale. Then I added details with other paint I had.

Now I have to find some cheap or free things to put in the baskets. My main mantra is
Never Throw Anything Away. 
I will have to add another one
Never Pay For Anything.

I will have a craft show on April 16. That should be a perfect time to sell unique baskets.

Let's Party
