{beautiful details: paint-dipped baskets}


. . . and while we’re on the topic of wicker, a chance to flip through the latest issue of martha stewart living on the weekend over coffee, and absolutely fell in love with these summer-perfect paint-dipped wicker baskets — whether dipped or brushed on, such a simple and simply wonderful way to give market and beach baskets a stylish update . . .

  • It’s a little embarrassing how excited these wicker baskets make me. They’re beautiful just on their own, but imagine them filled with fragrant flowers or fresh fruits and vegetables from the local farmers’ market – heavenly.

  • A persona can never have too many beautiful baskets, and these are just lovely! I love the dipped layer to them—a black bottom would be chic as well, I believe :)
