I mixed both the antique white and the aqua myself. I buy a can of paint from the Walmart oops department and then set to adding and mixing until I like the shade and add a bit of plaster of paris that makes it chalky paint. Well I had these baskets for more than a month and they are going to the Peddler's Market on Friday so I will officially be in the market for more next time I go perusing for excellent junk.Yeah!

Seems like evey time I go treasure hunting I come home with a basket or a tote. I just can't resist either of them but I have a new rule if I allow myself to by them I have to get them ready for market within a reasonable amount of time I (less than a month). I like to store my sewing and knitting in baskets because they can be stacked up and they make nice vintage accents to decorate with so I hate to part with them. I am in the business to make money so as sad as it seems they have to go. Baskets are functional and beautiful I can picture a stack of them in all colors up to the ceiling (that is my goal!).
