Dip paint inspired basket.

I have a million and one projects waiting in my project room to make a start on…… This was but one. To set the scene, I was restless and needed to do something to make the best use of my time in this unbearable heat…….. I spied this thrifted $2 basket awaiting some attention and thought that will do nicely. I already had some spray paint lurking around and I also had some bag rubbish bags and tape (the masking tape was locked away in the mancave outta my reach so I just used standard wide clear packing tape).

Easy peasy little project with chic stylish results. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

And as a bonus I now have a golden hand from holding down the stencil as the wind has now picked up……… Midas touch? Hmmmm.
