Hello friends!

Remember I mentioned I was going to put all these basket makeovers into one post for ya’ll so they’d be easy to access?
Well, today is the day.

All of the stained and painted baskets I’ve done are right here.

I mean because who doesn’t love baskets? I use them ALL over my home. Do you as well?

BUT before we get going on all these basket makeovers, don’t forget to hop over and get in on my latest giveaway!
You don’t want to miss out on this one. I’m giving away some goodies. :)

Stained and Painted Baskets

Pink and aqua basket makeover with pink flowers

This little tray basket was stuck in the ’70s but I pulled it out with some paint and a pretty Prima transfer.

French style basket with lid

This basket with lid and swing handles got a makeover on the inside and the outside.
It looks completely different now!

Winter white basket filled with blankets and pillows

I turned this old basket into a winter snuggles basket with paint.

Sheer green stained basket filled with spring flowers

One of my very favorite basket makeovers to date. I used a water-based stain on this one.

White and tan basket on table top

These two got a bit different treatment. Some stain, some paint, some dry brushing.
See them both “before” and all the makeover details, here.

White basket filled with dog toys

I used paint on this dark basket and added a sign to make a doy toy basket.

Dark brown tall basket filled with blankets and pillows

I gave this basket a new look with gel stain.

Rectangular basket filled with blue mason jars and lavender

And this one too, but a different shade.

Dry brushed basket with white paint

This was a much darker basket that I lightened up a little with some dry brushing.

Dark stained round basket on small round coffee table with magazines

And the latest basket makeover I’ve done. I used Polyshades on this one. (poly and stain in one)

Do you love baskets as much as I do? I use them all over my home.
And you don’t have to spend a fortune to decorate with them since you can usually find them all day long at the thrift store.
Nope…they aren’t always pretty but that’s what this post is for. Bring em home and change em up!

PIN it to save it!

I’ll see you on Thursday with something pretty I made over for our screened porch!

  1. Fun Nancy! I love all the different methods you used to transform these ordinary baskets into beautiful, useful accessories! I’m saving this post too because the techniques apply to so many other things. Wonderful ideas!! Thank you!!

  2. Hi Nancy! I do love baskets and now I know that I can stain them and make them look old, thanks to you!!

  3. Thanks for putting all your baskets in one post! I’ve had to cut back on baskets because I’ve run out of spaces to display them(boo hoo). I know this is about wicker baskets but I also love those wire things that are used to pick up tennis balls; I have a collection and haven’t come up with a plan. I thought about using them like hanging baskets of flowers…maybe this Spring!!

    1. Also, you could fill them with that moss, filler stuff (or something similar) and then put the planter down inside of that (where you can’t see it). That would be so pretty.

  4. Some really great ideas here. thanks for sharing! Could you source your coffee table for me? I’m looking for a round wood table and this looks similar to what I’d like.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Teri! I don’t, I’m sorry, it was a thrift store find. BUT apparently, they made quite a few of these as I’ve had more than a few readers say they have this exact table or they found it after seeing mine. (at thrift stores, etc) So keep an eye out at your local thrift stores, you never know! :)

  5. All your baskets are gorgeous! So I guess I will try this after seeing these! I have a whole horde of baskets to play with. Wish me luck! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Love what you’ve done with these baskets. I have quite a collection and am now inspired to work on some of mine😉

    1. That’s great, Karen! Have fun with your soon-to-be “new” treasures. It’s so much fun to transform them. :) xo
