Saltwash Farmhouse Baskets

Farmhouse baskets are a great way to display a Fall harvest.

Spray your own farmhouse baskets with paint and a coating of Saltwash.

What You'll Need:

Step 1:

Set up a dry, flat work area and cover it with a large drop cloth to protect surfaces from any overspray.

Step 3:

Hold the sprayer five-to-six inches away from the basket and spray it completely, making sure to coat it evenly and cover all the nooks and crannies.

Step 4:

To make the saltwash finish: In the detail sprayer paint cup add 1 cup of water, 1/8 cup white latex paint, and 1 scoop of salt wash powder. Mix thoroughly with a paint stick until smooth. Then, hold the sprayer six-to-eight inches away from the basket and spray the surface completely with the Saltwash in an even coat. This mixture is thinner than paint and will require that you hold the sprayer at a further distance for the best coverage.
