Apple Baskets

Today I decided to add a little something to this two apple baskets I bought a while back.
As usual, the choice of numbers makes it more interesting than just having a plain basket.

Words are also a favorite of mine.
This is one of those projects that can be done in less than
an hour from start to finish.

And I like these kind of projects, because it gives me an almost instant gratification in the middle of my big project (aka the kitchen cabinets).
I always like to handwriting my stuff, it gives me more choices in styles and makes it unique.

I also like to pencil in the numbers/words, because I want to make sure it doesn't look crocked and that the spacing is right.
To make it easier, you could use a stencil.
And this is my afternoon project all done.

Stay Frugal,

I love how that looks! I like numbers painted on things anyway (as you know). I like those bushel baskets for Fall.

I love the number nine and tend to add it to things. I love the way you painted the numbers on the baskets. Are they a code for something?
