A Sunday afternoon project

For weeks now I have been purchasing items to put together a picnic basket.   I have had the basket for  some years and decided that I could put it to better use.   I had a remnant of ticking fabric  stored away in a cupboard and thought this would be ideal to line the inside of the picnic basket.  Yesterday I purchased some green lace from the market to use as ties to hold items in place.  In total it took a couple of hours to complete the transformation, all we need now is some nice weather so that I can put it to good use.

Surprisingly the sun came out today which motivated me to complete my planters project.  I bought my two planters at a bargain price towards the end of the summer season last year and set about spraying them with a grey base and then two to three top coats of black matt finish.  Today has been perfect weather to relocate my two box plants into the transformed planters.
