I have a serious love for baskets, I have them in almost every room and today I’m showing you how to update a basket by giving it a weathered look. Baskets are abundant at thrift stores and super inexpensive, I grabbed this one a few years back for 2 bucks!

Give the basket a good cleaning with a soapy wet rag and let it dry.
You can use any grey paint you already have on hand. If you feel it might be too dark, add a little bit of white paint and mix the two colors together. Grab a dry paint brush and dip the bottom part of the bristles into the paint. Using the brush, get into all the crevices of the basket, inside and out. You don’t need to have every inch of the basket covered.
After you have finished allow the first coat to dry, it shouldn’t take long. Next add a layer of white paint . I only applied 2 layers but you can apply as many or as few layers as you want until you have achieved the look you are after.
It’s the perfect addition to our downstairs bathroom.
It’s that time again, when each of us makeover a thrift store find, a little inspiration for everyone!
