Garden Basket - Master Bedroom DIY decor Part 1

I know no one is on the edge of their seat waiting for the Master Bedroom reveal - but just in case you were wondering, it's still a work in progress. For some reason I thought finding the perfect driftwood and eclectic group of frames/artwork for a gallery wall would come together quickly. Ya, not so much. But it IS coming together so I wanted to share the little details that I complete along the way.

I found this adorable little garden basket at Michael's on clearance for $3 and knew it would be perfect to hold a knick-knack or two on our dresser.

Although "Blossom" is perfect for Spring, it won't work for the rest of the year and I'm only a decorate-for-the-seasons girl up to a point. So I busted out some painters tape and our wall paint and added a stripe to cover up "Blossom" and added a few stripes along the handle. Then I used sandpaper to distress it out a bit more.

It looks darling on the dresser along with my Mother's Day tulips and a starfish.

I have a thing with having one piece in a room match the wall color. I think it looks elegant.

I get such a thrill out of little things like this. Do you find trinkets at stores that you can't wait to makeover to fit your space?
