Hide the Wastebasket!

Here is the first item from our "picking" trip to Florida.

A wastebasket hider... I am sure that is a word.....

It needed some work, Mr. Sensible was on it,  fixed up the hinges replaced the handle connected the inside chain that had come off, re glued.  All the prerequisite jobs for an old piece. He also sanded the top so I could stain it.

I painted it Anne Sloanes Chalk Paint French Linen, then stenciled a brocade stencil over that with ASCP in Old White. 
After that dried I sanded to distress it some and make the stencil softer, then I used a clear wax and the dark wax.

It is off to the store,  hope you all have a great week!
