AN EASTER IDEA!
At The Painted Cottage Home I have this wonderful hand painted planter. It is so versatile. Use as a planter or a catch-all tote for gadgets or a different kind of Easter basket. Maybe you have someone on the older side but would enjoy an Easter basket. You could place a small plant inside add some grass and stuff with jelly beans and chocolates. I fill these wooden marvels with dark chocolate cheeses crackers and give with a bottle of wine on the side. How chic is that?
The planter measures outside 10.75″l x 6.75″d x 10.25″ h and the inside is 9.25″ l x 5″d x 9.5″ h. I used low VOC paints for the base white and hand painted with fine oil paints the design. It is sealed with a varnish and finally I hand rub the tote with a wax.
Great as a planter yet very and can be used for other suitable needs and uses you may think up. A few ideas are remotes, gloves, mail or simply fill with towels or napkins. The tote is made of pine with a maple handle. I painted a bunch of ivy, maiden hair fern and a berry vine on the sides and the front and back highlight the three.
