For now, I'm focusing on this basket:
The end result is a bit of a modern take on a traditional basket. I thought about using a different paint color than the white that Jenny used, but I had plans for the basket in our mudroom which is staying pretty neutral.
Our new basket will be replacing this overflowing shoe basket:
The ombre basket is a larger basket, but it's not too big. It still easily fits into a little corner of our mudroom, and after removing all of our 'seasonal' shoes (swimming shoes, soccer shoes, etc.), there is a ton of room remaining in the basket. (And there will be plenty of room for all those seasonal shoes when the reappear again in the spring:).)
The project took about 15 minutes total, even with my helper:). He's very proud of the basket he painted, and I am too!!
It feels good to cross that project off my list, especially since we've had the basket for a couple months now!! Does that ever happen to you? You have all the materials you need to complete a 15 minute project, yet it still takes months to complete? Ahhh!! I'm trying to tackle at least one small project like that per day around here, and as a result I have lots to write about! Stay tuned...:).
