Aged To Perfection
It has been so fun to pick items from Barr Display to sell at the Fancy Flea November 2 (You can read about my partnership with Barr Display and the Fancy Flea HERE). I'm sure because of the versatility and inexpensive price, these baskets will be a huge hit at the Flea
Now, these baskets look great just as they are, but I wanted to see what they would look like if they were aged.
This was really easy...I dipped steal wool in apple cider vinegar and wiped it over the basket...That's it! I have no idea why it works, but it's magic, sit back and watch the basket age as it dries.
Now for the fun part. I had an old apple label I put on this basket
For the second basket after I aged it, I dry brushed it with white paint (You can see my post on how to dry brush HERE). For the "Fresh Eggs" label, I printed on Fabric (tutorial HERE) and used spray adhesive to attach it to the basket.
I took two images and merged them. The rooster was from Graphics Fairy and the Fresh eggs from Google free images. Then I smudged a little brown ink around the edges.
Yep, from perfectly new to perfectly aged
