{diy wicker basket makeover}


this really isn't even a diy. absolutely anyone could do this, its more of an idea, really.

you know those wicker baskets that were probably all over your house growing up?
well they are in just about every single yard sale/thrift shop you can imagine now.

so you can take them from junky & dull to beautiful in about 10 minutes. all you need is a can of spray paint. i think metallic colors are especially beautiful, personally.

we use ours to store little supplies for isaac in our room, now. way nicer than leaving them all over our dresser!

{you will need}
spray paint
primer (optional)

before you start painting, be sure there isn't any dust or cobwebs or it will show up when you spray paint. you may want to pull out your vacuum hose for that one.

then prime, if you so choose. i didn't with mine, but if i did it again, i think i would just because the wicker was so dark on my baskets to begin with.

these were done with a valspar metallic silver spray paint from lowes.

have fun!
