DIY Painted Storage Baskets

I've had these baskets for a few years.  I think I originally bought them at Pier 1.  Lately I've had painted baskets on the brain so I decided to give this pair a makeover.

DIY  Painted Storage Baskets

It took less than an hour including drying time.  I used painter's tape and acrylic craft paint.  I just eye-balled the lines - no measuring at all.  Then when the white paint was dry I free-handed the numbers.  This was an easy, no-cost (I already had the tape and paint) diy project - my favorite kind!

I don't know why but little changes make me happy - especially when they take less than hour!

And if I ever get tired of this look they'll be just as easy to repaint.

Have you hopped on the painted basket bandwagon?

  10. WEll thank you so much for great idea, aren't you the clever girl. I can't get over all the incredible talent out there in blogland.
    I have some baskets on our bathroom storage unit and would like to do something to snazz them up. Now I can do it thanks to your genius and sharing. I keep toiletries, nail polishes, etc in seperate baskets so now I'll give them a little zing.
    We don't have a linen closet so hubs built like a bookcase for me to keep towels, etc. and baskets for toiletries in bathroom. Luckily our bathroom is a decent size to accomadate. He also built shelves over the toilet enclosure, quite handy. Maybe I'll keep the grouchy old stinker after all. (Just kidding honey)


Be nice or I'll tell your mom! xoxo -C
