Hello friends and happy Sunday!

I’m back today to share with you that I am gifting one of you with the French basket I just gave a makeover to last week.

I certainly can’t send an empty basket so you might have a little surprise when you open it up! ;)

I’m so thrilled to be giving this away. I’ve wanted to start giving away some of the things I make for a while now.
I haven’t yet mostly because of the size of some of them and packing, you know, all that. haha

This one’s kind of big but I’m gonna figure it out and get it on its way as soon as we have a winner! Yippee!!

  11. Hi Nancy! I’ve been following you for a while and love your creativity and style! I’d love to see more makeovers and to actually own something you upcycled – it would be a very special addition to my home! Happy Holidays!

  12. Oops! I always comment and then go back and read the question. :-) Yes, of course we’d love to have more of your beautiful giveaways! You do such amazing work! Thanks again!

  13. Love, love the basket. Recycling is such a great concept. Some older items are better made than some today. Thank you for your project, love them. Merry Christmas to you and your family.🎅

  14. Well, this is fun! I’d love to see more giveaways. You do a fabulous job!

    This basket would be perfect underneath my antique floor lamp – I just redid the lampshade with a fabric that has the Eiffel Tower on it.

  15. What a lovely idea, thank you so much for doing this! It’s exciting to be in the running for the beautiful basket!

  16. Hi! YES, I would love to see more giveaways! I love your work and blog and would be love to own a piece of “Repurpose”!

  17. Love the basket. I love to go to the thrift stores. You never know what you will find and that’s thee fun in it. Love you emails and will keep reading them.

  18. YES! I love this basket and I appreciate the craftsmanship of things that people make. This is probably the best holiday giveaway ever.

  19. I love seeing all your clever makeovers. This one looks a lot like a sewing basket I have that is at least 55 years old or so. Interesting to see how you redid it. Nice giveaway!

  20. I would love to have my name drawn for this French inspired basket. It will be right at home here at my house. I have a wall clock turned curio cabinet with this same French material as it’s background; a match made to happen. What a nice idea 💡 for you to have had for us, your bloggers. Here’s hoping 🤞

  21. Love your basket! Thank you for giving everyone a chance to win it. I can always use more places to store things in, while being decorative as well, especially as pretty as the French basket. Looking forward to seeing more of your great work on the blog!

  22. Love all the things you create and I’ve learned a lot about how to make my own home more beautiful by following your direction. This basket is beautiful and I appreciate the chance to win it for my very own!

  23. Love how you transformed that basket into something anyone would be proud to own. I love your blog and all the ideas you share with us.

  24. I love this! I had one of these and sold it at a yard sale. What a huge mistake! If I’d only known how cute it could have been. Great job!

  25. I LOVE how the basket turned out, so beautiful! Thanks for the contest for me to win it! I can’t wait to see what you put inside!!

  26. OMG!! This basket is absolutely gorgeous! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. If I won it, not only would I have the most beautiful basket EVER, I’d be able to say I owned an original Arty Chick’s piece of art. Fingers and toes are crossed!

  27. So fun! If I’m lucky enough to win, I think I’d like to use it to hold our scriptures. Wouldn’t that be cute? 💙

  28. You are so good giving away this beautiful basket! I seem to make many things and then want to keep it myself instead of selling it! Haha

    Merry Christmas Nancy! 😊

  29. Yes, of course I would love to see more giveaways of things you make or do-over. I love this little basket that you up-cycled. I was wishing I could find one myself to re-do. So I would be so happy to win it! Thanks for offering this generous giveaway.

  30. I always look forward to your blog. Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas. I am redoing my living, kitchen and dinning room.

  31. You are such an inspiration, Nancy. Thank you for ALL the makeovers you so graciously share with all of us! And I would love to have my name put in the basket (no pun intended LOL) to have a chance to own an original by you..

  32. You are always an inspiration. I didn’t even think of painting a basket black before I added the color on top. My next basket project may not be a fail thanks to this tip.

  33. Nancy, I admire your creativity and love opening your e-mails. I’m sure your readers would be delighted with the opportunity to own a piece of yours. Thanks for all the inspiration.


  35. All of your makeovers are so pretty. I look forward to your emails! Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your creations.

  36. Hi, Nancy! I love your style especially the “beachy” look! I live in Hampton, so I feel so “close” to you! I love your contests too, although I never win. That’s ok. I look so forward to your weekly blogs! Have a very Merry Christmas!!

  37. Love to see more giveaways. All the things you redo turn out so lovely. Fine with it being something small. I am in the process of downsizing and donating items not needed.

  38. Hi, I started following this year and LOVE your makeovers and trash to treasures! I appreciate that some are so easy to replicate. Opens my eyes to the possibilities!

  39. Love, love, love the basket! I would never have the patience to do all ya did! I hope I win. Have the perfect place to put it!!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  40. Hi Nancy, I have to be honest here and admit that prior to this post, I would not have given this basket a second look! Again, the power of fresh paint and fabric, wow! I really like your idea of painting the basket black first then the white paint over top, it looks perfectly distressed this way. Great makeover!

  41. Love that basket makeover!! I always look forward to your emails and your creative inspiration! Hope you and your family have a blessed holiday.

  42. Nancy,
    I absolutely love all your creative ideas and your offering a lucky follower the ability to own this cute little basket! That is so kind of you!
    Happy holidays to you and yours!

  43. Ok…..they say imitation is a form of flattery…. if that is the case, consider yourself flattered! I copy you a wee bit. (Understatement) I mean, if not for you I wouldn’t have my new favorite color… Aubison Blue!!!!! (I will send you a pic of my drop leaf table!) I saw this post and immediately said ” I need to do something like this!” Ha! So… went on facebook marketplace and found an adorable picnics basket. Not like yours but I can’t wait to refurbish it. You inspire! Thank you!!!

    1. Aw, that’s the best thing ever!! I want you all to copy me all day long! I love that! :) Yes, please send a pic, I’d absolutely love to see it! And how fun that you found a basket!! Awesome, have fun with it, Peggy! :) xoxo

  44. I would LOVE to see more giveaways of the things you make on your blog! Everything you make is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful basket!

  45. Thank you Nancy! I so look forward to Tuesdays and Thursdays to see what you have been up to. I appreciate you sharing your stories and creativity with us. I would treasure one of your creations displayed in our home; you are so thoughtful. Love this basket! Much Love to you and your family!

  46. Love the giveaways! Keep ’em coming. Thank you for sharing your tips & tricks and love for all things DIY. You are such an inspiration.

  47. I’m new to your blog, thanks to Christy @ Confessions of a Serial DIY’er! But, now that I’ve seen that basket, clearly I’m going to have to binge read all your blogs, and binge watch all your YouTube shows, because I love your sense of style!! Yea! I am always looking for more ideas of things that I AM NEVER GOING TO GET AROUND TO DOING!! LOL!!! (Just kidding, I actually do about one out of 100!!)

  48. LOVE this sewing basket makeover! I still have one from when I was little that I am going to makeover – thank you for the inspiration! It will look so cute on my sewing cabinet! Right now I just keep it hidden in a closet LOL!

  49. Seriously? We’d all be crazy not to want anything you would part with. How about a one on one class for those that may live near? Although these days I guess you’d need to run a background check, full psych work up, etc., etc….
