Beachy Basket Makeover

Hi there! Remember when I shared my hutch decorated three ways as part of a decorating challenge with some of my favorite blogging friends? Well today we're back and this month's decorating challenge is baskets! I see baskets used  mostly for storage of course, but there's no reason they can't be functional and decorative right?
