DIY: From Easter to Useful

I took two baskets from Easter and spray painted them to make them useful!





  I now use one of the baskets to throw used handtowels in between washings :D


Yes, I see blue too!  But you know what?  I didn't see it before I got down low and took the picture...and that's okay!

I actually think that the blue is ok. I obviously can't see it in person but blue and brown are it color combos so I think you're safe.

Repurposing anything is always good, especially when it turns out this nice.

What a great idea! I should go to the good will and find cheap old baskets and try the same thing! Great Post.
Oh and you are so naughty about me being a paid model. You really made me laugh! :)
