...make it - basket case...

...here's a super cool project to spice up your market basket, indoor planter, or to create a unique light fixture for your abode.

1.  Clean your basket with a mild soap & water mixture before starting to remove any dirt or dust- then let dry completely
2.  Flip your basket over & mask off the area that you do not wish to paint with masking tape & newspaper.  I suggest making this strip as wide as possible to avoid spray paint from creeping over (unless you'd like that look).
2.  Coat the exposed area with 1 layer of primer & let dry- then follow with 1 or 2 coats of your chosen color- (just be sure to wait ample time between coats) & voila- a fancy new basket...x mvg {images via free people & harpers bazaar}
