Farmer’s Market Sign Kitchen Produce Baskets

Have you ever noticed when you remodel a room, you absolutely love it and think you’ll want to spend every minute adoring your new space?  Then a few months pass, and all those little details that you so thoughtfully worked into the space, you no longer even notice.  In our channel-changing world, we love to click and see the next show that’s on.  That’s the way I am with my house.

Every so often, I feel the need to mix things up in my house.  Not because there’s anything wrong with the current arrangement, but because I feel the need for a fresh new look (or project) to make me love my space again.

I’ve been using some vintage fryer baskets to hold fruits and vegetables ever since we remodeled our kitchen.  They work great, but I realized I don’t even notice them anymore.  Ignored decor means it’s time for something fresh.

And thus was born a fresh picked farmer’s market sign!  Here’s how I did it …

Directions:

  1.  Sand the board.

My milk can patio table multi-tasks!  It makes an easy place to sand wood and is just the right height for me.

2.  Paint board and let dry.

I used Dixie Belle’s Chalk Mineral Paint Fluff.  This is my first time using Dixie Belle’s Chalk Mineral Paint, and I’m in love.  It went on like a dream and dried so quickly, so I could move onto the next step.

3.  Use a palm sander to distress the whole board.

Plywood has a great rustic texture, so distressing it after painting highlights that.

I have a random assortment of vintage fryer baskets that I’ve picked up at flea markets, but you can also find them on Etsy.

TIP – If you can’t find vintage fryer baskets, get new ones and use my amazing aging technique to make them look old!

4.  Determine where you want the baskets placed first, then tape the stencil in position before attaching the baskets.

5.  I painted the words with a dry loaded stencil brush using Dixie Belle’s Chalk Mineral Paint Midnight Sky.

6.  Once the paint was dry, I used a staple gun to attach the baskets to the board.  I added plenty to make sure they were good and sturdy.  Once you put fruit in the baskets, the staples are hidden.

7.  Add hangers to the back, fill the baskets, then stand back to admire your handiwork!

I hung my new produce storage sign next to my beautiful kitchen window overlooking the horse pasture and my covered back porch that just got a makeover earlier this month.

And my ironstone pitchers hanging above the window, instead of hanging a valance?  I’m still so glad I hung them there.

I’m in love with my kitchen and those vintage wire baskets all over again!

    So cool! I never thought to look for fryer baskets at the thrift stores. Thanks for posting this!

  2. Very very creative!

  3. That is a cute idea! I love Dixie Belle paints. I’ve been using them for a few months now and there is no comparison to the usual chalk paints you find in the big box craft store. They are fantastic!

  4. How creative, Angie! Of course the sign just makes it! Clever and useful, I’d say. Wish I had enough wall space in my kitchen to hang one. My kitchen is small and every wall is covered with cupboards or an appliance. Not complaining, just would like one free wall!

    • When we modeled our kitchen, we installed open shelving because the room is small and cabinets would have made it look even smaller. The small wall between my pantry and window is the only wall without shelves, it’s my fun wall to hang things on!
