Jamie Lundstrom of So Much Better with Age is a talented fellow Canadian blogger with a gorgeous French Country aesthetic. Her new book just released yesterday, and I’d encourage you to grab your copy ASAP – it’s already a best seller! You can buy it from Amazon right here.

The book is chock full of 60 tutorials from painting furniture to creating small DIY projects. All of the projects are beautiful and straight forward – I had a hard time picking which one to do first! I’d recommend this book to anyone who loves French style and DIY and decor. Incredible job, Jamie!

Jamie invited me to preview her book and try a DIY from it. I chose to turn a plain wicker basket into something you might find at a French country market with her vintage basket tutorial from the book.
