It was a real scorcher here in Sydney today... first taste of Summer and about time too!
Sharing a quick little make over I finished recently. I heart wicker... I've blogged about my love before here and here.
So when I came across this little gem I couldn't walk past it... $10 orange wicker special!
Before: The colour almost looks nice in this shot.. but it was your basic fake tanny orange wicker.
A little work in progress shot. I hand painted it as I wanted a rustic look as well as more control over the finish. Sometimes I find with a spray can it can be a little uneven with this type of wicker.
After the white I added a hand painted blue stripe... I was going for a rustic French Coastal look!
After: White, bright with a French Blue Coastal Stripe :)
Now to decide where to use him, I think it's quite a practical and versatile little piece. My original thought was to put it to organising duty in the pantry. But I'm also thinking it might be practical to hold Bath roomy things. What do you think?
Happy White Wicker Dreaming friends,
Linking up to these lovely parties...
