I tend to assign a little too much personality to inanimate objects, so when this cool basket languished at my friend's garage sale after 2 days and a price reduction, I had to claim it. Its first life was as a baby bassinet long ago and I couldn't stand for it not to have a good home. ;) Can you see how this feeling sorry for objects might be a problem?
I liked the white paint on it and the natural distressing provided by age, but to go in this particular spot, I thought a dark color would work better.
