I've been loving the paint-dipped look that a lot of baskets have been sporting recently, so that was my plan with this guy. I taped off a few inches around the bottom of the basket and started painting. Yes, I was the girl spray painting a basket at 10:00 at night in freezing cold weather . I'm sure I looked like a crazy person.
Once I did a few coats and left it to dry in the garage, I brought it in and added a sweet floral ribbon using my hot glue gun.
I chose to personalize it with a C for Charley. I spray painted a wooden C from Michael's using the same pink paint. Then I traced it onto a green polka dotted gift tag, cut it out, and glued it on to give it a whole new look. I love the mix of the modern polka dots with shabby chic floral ribbon.
Not bad for a two dollar thrift shop basket, eh?! Happy Easter! Pin It
