A Basket Case - A Basket From My Mom's Garage!

How is it going? Happy Friday! Hope you had a great week! It's been a really busy week here. Well I say busy but my pace has slowed down a lot. I have a lot of projects I am working on but I am taking my time to stay focused and do one at a time. If you've read any of my posts before, you know I am all over the place with projects. Currently I am working on a BIG outdoor project and there is a learning curve plus I can have to have good weather to work on it. Today we had a little rain so I got a much needed break! That project will be coming soon! 
So here's a basket I scored from my mom and dad's garage! My mom and I share a love for baskets. She has a ton that she used to display in her kitchen but isn't using all of them anymore so I got to take my pick!   

I picked thiiiiiis one because it had cool wooden handles and a nice round shape to it.
I got it home and immediately found a place for it! I put it in the reading nook in the bay window of the dining room. Of course the reading nook is mostly used by the cat right now. I might paint it but just haven't quite decided. What do you think? Should I paint it or leave it?!?!?!
