I got this basket at a thrift store a few months ago. When I got it, it was all natural colored.
Then I decided to do this to it….. What was I thinking?
White dipped, good…
Gold dip on top of white dip, bad…
Plus, the added black strip on top… really bad…
At least I can admit my crazy crafty mistakes, and even share a couple of them with you!!
This basket has room hopped so many times since I got it. Mainly because of its large size but really because I painted it so ugly!!
My wrapping paper was a mess to say the least. Some parts were sitting in this laundry basket. Some of it was under my bed and the last part of it was shoved in a closet getting all sorts of wrinkled.
I was tired of running from room to room looking for that ribbon I just knew that I had bought last month but couldn’t find. As I was pondering how to organize this chaotic gift wrapping mess, the ugly basket came to mind.
I finally reasoned with myself and realized that the white dipped, gold dipped, black strip wasn’t happening.
I proceeded to spray paint the whole thing antique white. I now love this basket!!
I added all of my wrapping paper into the basket. I also made a mini garment bag and use that to store all of my gift bags, tissue paper, and ribbon. This way I can pull out the entire bag and find what I need rather than running from room to room!
It is currently sitting next to our bookshelves. Not sure if it will be here forever but for now I am content.
How do you store your wrapping paper and gift giving supplies??
