You can never have enough storage and baskets are a great way of keeping things tidy! These inexpensive Ikea baskets can be used for a whole host of storage solutions and, with the help of PlastiKote spray paint, look good too!
Using pretty heritage colours from the PlastiKote Chalk range – Frost Blue, Pale Rose and Pastel Green – we sprayed three baskets, choosing to paint one half of each basket to keep a rustic feel.
The Pastel Green basket found its way to the kitchen. It works well (and looks great!) as storage for fruit and veg on the counter top.
A useful addition to the bathroom, the Frost Blue basket holds toiletries and cloths for overnight guests.
A handy container to take cutlery and napkins out on a sunny summer’s evening for dining al fresco, the Pale Rose basket has yet to find a permanent home (though thinking it may work well in the bedroom to hold hairbrushes and straighteners…).
Are you inspired? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
- Make sure the basket is clean and dry.
- Use Chalk spray paint in the colour of your choice, following instructions on the can.
- Allow to thoroughly dry before putting into use.
If you do spray your own baskets, do tag us on Instagram #plastikoteuk or send in via email email@example.com – we’d love to see them.
