Revamp an Old Basket with Paint

Weary old baskets can be updated with a simple lick of paint.

You will need:

  • White and grey paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Masking tape
  • Measuring tape

What to do:

Step 1

Clean the baskets with soapy water and leave to dry in the sun.

Step 2

Decide on a pattern – it can be a half-half design, lines, or even an ombre effect that might be to your liking.

Step 3

To paint a line, measure the width of the area, mask above and below with masking tape, paint the exposed area and leave to dry. Repeat to cover any missed spots.


Step 4

If you use spray paint, be careful to avoid spraying outside the desired area.
