I had hoped to share a new sign I did today, but I am still waiting on the wording to arrive. While waiting for that, I decided to move onto the next project. About a year and a half ago, I bought one of these willow basket shopping carts from Joann’s. I added ruffle to the liner that came with it and posted about that here.
I had brought this to my booth to sell but it wasn’t moving, so I decided it was time for a makeover. I originally bought the cart when I saw Laurie’s at Heaven’s Walk. I brought the cart home from the booth and got out some light grey flat paint. I would have liked to use French Linen chalk paint on this but the little bit I had left dried up. I brushed a quick coat of paint on the inside and outside of the cart.
I decided to just add a fabric label to the front of the cart and used a left over scrap of dropcloth. I probably should have ironed it first.
I used a French Market stencil that I had and some black craft paint. A little hot glue in a couple of strategic places and it was attached.
Now this willow cart has a whole new look going for it and I’m hoping it will go home with someone soon!
