Wastebasket No. 5

Monday, December 10, 2012

Sort of has the same ring as Chanel No. 5, right? Ok, well maybe not, but I knew when I spotted this giant, homemade wastebasket at Goodwill that it had potential.  It was made out of glossy paneling and in the past I would have left it and its $2 price tag behind.  But, I knew a quick transformation  with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint was possible.

A little Old Ochre,
some distressing with a wet cloth and some wax, and a number 5 painted on was all it needed to make a great storage piece. 
It has signs in it I painted on old pickets, but has so many possibilities.  What would you store in it?
