Yes…my shabby picnic basket planter made the pages of the summer issue of Flea Market Décor magazine! Can you believe it?
It all started with one of those old wicker picnic baskets that are a dime a dozen at Goodwill. (Well, actually, mine was $4.00.) Then…inspired by a very pricy planter that I saw online a while back…I set about trying my hand at making a copy-cat version. You can find the complete tutorial for creating my shabby picnic basket planter here.
Hmmm…somehow I don’t think the staff is very impressed. They certainly help to keep me in line! :-)
Here is how it looked last summer with the begonias in full bloom…love it! With a little fresh paint and some more pretty flowers, it will soon be heading out on my patio for a fourth summer! I’ll have to say that it’s just about the best $4.00 I ever spent!
