Hello lovelies!! I’m back today with a round up of my basket makeovers!
Baskets are another thing I always look for at thrift stores. They are so functional and I just love to paint them! There are 16 in all. Now most of these are white, but I’ve added other little embellishments here and there to give them personality!
Up first is a super oldie! I redid this basket back in 2015:
A little FrogTape and spray paint to the rescue! I still have this in our guest bath holding TP:
The shells add a fun, coastal feel.
Next up is this basket my friend, Shanna from Restoration Redoux, sent me for one of our Swap it Like it’s Hot Challenges:
I decided to cover this one in fabric!
This next basket is one of the biggest baskets I’ve redone.
It got a similar striped paint treatment as the first one! This was taken in our old living room:
I redid this basket for a decorating challenge using baskets to decorate for Spring:
A small chalkboard sign and some pretty faux Camellias were perfect for a spring makeover:
These were spray painted also and got a few embellishments:
The top one got an old drawer pull and the bottom one got a set of wheels I had saved from furniture piece:
I don’t mis those red floors in our dining room at all. I use the bottom basket to stage photos all the time, most recently here:
They live in our living room and hold some of Brennan’s toys.
These next two baskets got a quick makeover for one of my Painting the Smalls posts:
I currently have them stacked on our built-ins in the living room:
For these next two baskets, I shared how I lined them with fabric:
And the inside:
It also got a key and a little tag I made from scrap luan:
And the second one got a sweet stencil:
I added one on the inside too:
I tried to flog this next basket at my yard sale for a dollar, but no takers!
I added it to my Yard Sale Rescue Pile and gave it some much-needed love:
This next little basket was only 50¢ at a yard sale, so I had to buy it:
I painted this one and gave it a little tag also:
And it got a pretty new fabric liner:
I kept this next basket:
It is perfect for stashing remotes!
It too got a fun tag for some added personality.
I love these older picnic baskets…
This one was updated with paint and a transfer that I added to the top:
Up next is this cool basket I picked up for only 99¢:
I ended up using this for a fall tour I did with some fellow blog friends and gave it a fall makeover:
How about this lovely specimen:
I loved the shape of it, but not so much the doodad on the front. I painted it and gave it a new kind of doodad:
I used a lace curtain and spray paint to give the top a unique pattern:
And those super cute sweater pumpkins fill the basket insert that goes inside:
I kept that insert. These larger picnic baskets are still in my booth. I guess not many people have picnics these days and they don’t really know what else to do with them. I love them to store all kinds of things. Every last pumpkin sold though!
And finally this one…
I didn’t do a whole post on this one, but I shared it when I shared this $25 China Cabinet Makeover:
I just love a white painted basket, as you can see! If you like a really worn look like on this one, give it only paint one coat of paint and then sand like crazy!
The larger picnic baskets may not sell well for me, but the smaller ones all go pretty quickly!
I’m so glad ya’ll stopped by today!
I’ll be back on Thursday with an old favorite, this hutch I scored for only $60:
