Garage Sale Purchases Re-purposed As A Wall Pocket


The artwork and the plain frame were recent garage sale finds.

I paid $1 for each.

The white baskets were also recent rummage sale finds.  $2 for the pair.

Time to whip up a project!

First I brushed two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue on the frame, and wet distressed the frame with a damp rag.

I had a scrap of rough sawn fence board from my bookshelf project that was just about the right size for the frame.  

The boards had been grayed with Varathane Weathered Wood Accelerator.  It's water based and speeds up the weathering process.  I like the results, especially on rough sawn fence boards.  I did not seal the gray wood but I did seal the chalk paint with Varathane Interior Crystal Clear Water-Based Poly in Satin Finish.

The board was cut to perfectly fit in the frame, and the nails were toed in to hold the board in place.

A sawtooth hanger was added to the back.

Then I simply hung the small basket on a nail.

My fall floral picks are from Kruenpeeper Creek Gifts.

I like FALL colors with duck egg blue!

The distressed frame and basket work well together too.

This would be a perfect project to hang on your door instead of a wreath.
