Tisket, Tasket, Updated Basket

So, I was making my way across Wal Mart from the paint department (can’t beat the price on spray paint!) to the crafts department (hey, sometimes they have supplies cheaper than the craft stores), when I spied these chicken wire baskets.

Now, farmhouse is not my style — mostly because I don’t live in a farmhouse — and black and white are not my color scheme in any room, but the size was perfect and they had been marked down to the fabulouso price of $6.  I could make them fit into my house with a little paint — especially since I knew I already had paint on hand.  Since the liners were ivory and not pure white, I started with a base of ivory paint.

Then I covered roughly the upper half of the baskets and used my TintIt spray for a slight ombre effect on the bottom half of the baskets.

I considered adding some painted or driftwood stained wood shims for a lobster trap look, but for now I’m liking the coastal color vibe look just fine.  A little paint creates designer chic.
