An Old Farmhouse Tote Gets A New Look

I found this old farmhouse  tote a few years ago and I have enjoyed using it.

But I decided it needed a little refresh on the original color,it was looking a little dingy.

I decided to pull out one of my favorite milk paint colors Miss Mustard seeds Eulalie sky.


I just painted this two coats of Eulalie and then added Miss Mustard Seeds white wax on top.

Love how that white wax brings out all the imperfections.


This is an old tote but with a little paint and sanding it looks truly worn.

And the color is so much nicer now too.


I don’t like pieces to look perfect.

Imperfection is perfection to me.

But sometimes a piece can get dingy dirty and it needs a little paint refresh to bring out the cool vintage qualities.


Love this old hanger handle.


I love using these totes in my home.

Adding a few jars filled with flowers always looks so pretty.

They also can be used to store extra napkins,small plates or utensils.

This sweet tote is now available in the shop.

I have recently added a few new items too.

You can visit the shop HERE.

    Oh Anne, anytime you visit often or not it’s always a treat, and no need to feel forgotten.
    I love your caddy, storage box, wood tray, and the coat hanger handle is so cleverly sweet.
    Love how your post make me feel as if you were in a garden linen jacket with clippers in hand and cutting flowers filling your box from the garden.
    The paint job is so garden cottage cute!

    Beautiful Weekend To You!
    Lots of inspiration to you.

    I am off to catch up on your older postings.
