Finish It Friday: Turkey And Basket

This week I finished two projects from my garage pile. This wooden turkey started out a dull grayish brown when I bought him at a garage sale too many years ago to remember when. 

 I finally finished his white makeover this week, just in time for the fall season. Turkey would probably be improved with a little dark wax to age him/her, but for now I'm calling Turkey done!

 See those gold pictures lurking behind Turkey? That's a new project I picked up this week at a second hand shop for dirt cheap. 

And that basket I was painting white on "White Wednesday" last week? Well...YAY! I finally finished that too...

Here's a reminder of what the basket looked like while it was getting a makeover...

I had planned to leave some of the natural brown of the basket showing, but that didn't work out very well. 

There's only a little peek of the basket's original finish showing here under the metal leaves.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. Love your turkey and it reminded me I don't own a turkey and I should.

    1. Janet, I saw another turkey in a thrift shop just the other day. They are available super cheap if you're willing to do a makeover.

  2. Great turkey and your painted basket is going to be so handy too.

  3. Both great finish's always good to finish a project. The basket was impressive and great for storage.

  4. Well, you have been a busy girl. I love your white turkey. My mother raised white turkeys for everyone in our neighborhood for Thanksgiving every year. lol...I won't tell you how stupid they are when you try to round the up to put them in their pen for the night.

    Love your white basket, too. Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

  5. Your turkey turned out great. Would love to find one, but haven't seen any around here.

    Love the basket also - there is so much you can do with it.

    Enjoy your weekend.


  6. Your turkey turned out beautifully - what a great find! Love the basket, too. You have been a busy gal! xx Karen

  7. Your projects turned out terrific! I haven't done much painting, but I sure have a lot of old stuff around here to paint!

  8. I don't have a turkey either,

  9. I love what you did with the basket. What are you going to use it for?

  10. I just love that cute turkey Sugar!!
