Goodwill Pie Basket Repurposed as a Side Table


My aunt gave me this wooden pedestal.  Not sure what the original use was, but the top had a chip in the wood.

 Earlier this year, I upcycled this pie basket from Goodwill.


It had a shelf inside to stack two pies.

I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen, stenciled grain sack stripes with an Old Sign Stencils stencil, and applied a Re-Design with Prima transfer to the top.

Full details on this project can be found HERE.

After removing the center spindle on the pedestal, I decided to use the pedestal as a table base on my basket.

A 10" x 10 1/2" square piece of plywood was cut to go inside on the basket bottom.

The board in the bottom gave the basket stability.  The board was then screwed into the pedestal.

I painted the board with Annie Sloan Paint in French Linen.

The pedestal was also painted with French Linen and waxed with Dixie Belle's Best Dang Wax in Clear.

It's a great little side table for a cup or glass or remote.  The inside can hold magazines, books or even knitting or handiwork.
