Paint it? Don't?

I went to an auction tonight.  It was a box lot auction, which means there was a whole lotta crap they were selling for a dollar.  If no one wanted an item, they combined it with the next box until it went away.

This basket was sold alone, thankfully, and I had my eye on it the moment I walked into the auction.

It is 15" high

and the diameter is 17½".

There are only one or two little snags in the weave and no holes at all.  It's an awesome basket.

Even the bottom is interesting.  (and a little dirty)

So, I managed to win this basket at the auction.  It was touch and go for a moment, but I managed to squeak out the winning bid of $2.

Can you believe it?  Two dollars? 

("I want my two dollars!"  Name that movie. )

Well, I can clean it up and put it on craigslist for $20 or so (I'll research it to find out if that's a good price) or I can clean it up and paint it white and have it look all fresh and clean and current. 

What's your opinion?  Paint or no paint? 

Have a great day
