Recently I acquired this green basket at Target. It was a dollar…nuf said.
I had it in my bedroom, just sitting there for week with a few travel size Kleenex, scope and lotion …not the best use for spacious basket. It wasn’t until today that I decided to make good use of it and make it a magazine holder. I wasn’t really a fan of the green color , I wanted a more old vintage…y classic feel to it.
This DIY is pretty simple, I applied about three coats of gesso. Yes, gesso, I had no more white paint and gesso is white...so.. why not! Actually I do recommend using white paint instead. I then applied four coats of black paint; since the white was already dry I dipped the brush a bit into cold water to mix the white and black, and viola.
