Painted Basket

Give an ordinary woven basket a facelift with spray paint. It’s an easy project that lets you organize craft supplies (or other odds and ends) in style.


Step 1: Mask the upper half of the basket with two layers of 2″-wide [5.08 cm] painter’s tape. Continue wrapping the tape around the basket until the entire top half is covered.

Step 2: Spray-paint the bottom half of the basket on all sides.

Step 3: Let dry completely. Spray-paint a second time and let dry. Remove the tape.
