Can you ever have too many baskets? I made a Gray Striped Storage Basket from a thrift store basket for this month’s Thrift Store Decor Challenge. I love having baskets to pile blankets in, shoes in or whatever you need to store.
Gray Striped Storage Basket
I found a nice, tall basket for only $1 – YEP $1!!! One of our local thrift stores has some killer deals on Thursday, so you know where to find me on Thursdays!
Here’s what I used to create this Gray Striped Storage Basket… there’s affiliate links for your convenience.
Gray Striped Storage Basket Supplies:
- gray paint (I used chalk paint, but acrylic craft paint would work too)
- painter’s tape (I used 1″ tape)
- foam paint brush
I started by placing the painter’s tape around the basket. I wanted my stripes in the center area, but place where you’d like.
Then it’s time to start painting. Load just a small amount of paint on your brush, you don’t want the paint dripping – we’re going for clean stripes!
I painted 2 coats of gray paint. By the time I got around the basket the paint had dried, so I was able to put the second coat on right away.
I let the paint dry about 30 minutes and then peeled the painter’s tape off.
These simple stripes were a quick update to my thrift store $1 basket score!
