The weather has been so beautiful, it's great to work outdoors. I'm doing little projects like this one in the garage where I can enjoy those nice temperatures!
I'm finishing things in my daughter's bedroom, these baskets are going to go there to help her keep the room organized. Let's hope she uses them!
But of course they had to be dress up to go to my girly girl's room.
The plan: Painted stripes and a tag
The materials: Paint, painters tape, spray adhesive, scraps pieces of wood, wooden tags, chalk paint (I used Self-Stick Chalkboard Sheets), jute twine.
The painters tape is placed around the baskets to form the stripes.
Spray paint the taped area, covering the areas you don't want to paint. I run out of white spray paint. I had to continue applying acrylic paint with a brush, either way is OK, though spray painting goes a lot faster.
The scrap pieces of 1/4" plywood were painted white and two small holes were drilled on each side. The wooden tags bought at Michel's (30 cents each) were then attached using spray adhesive.
The tag was secured to the basket with jute twine.
The baskets ready to be fill up with stuff.
