SALVAGE A WICKER BASKET TODAY

Sometimes all it takes is a little imagination.

With wicker baskets on the cusp of becoming unfashionable, I thought I’d find a way to make them seem less dated in the home – sometimes even I have the urge to get rid of something just because it’s not my ‘taste’ anymore.

These baskets aren’t complete yet. I plan on masking patterns onto them and spray painting it a different colour.

I have a real obsession with geometric shapes so don’t be surprised if they’re not elaborate decorative designs. I toyed with the idea of painting the inside of the basket a red but I think that would be nearly impossible to achieve with this particular weave.

.

If I can give any advice: always spray paint outside and use some of your paper in the recycling bin to lie on your work surface.

There are tons of things I could do to make sure these baskets avoid the bin and that’s exactly what I’ll do.

 

Happy hoarding!

Yours truly,

Nina
