I am in a transitional period with my home. Because of this blog, as well as other writing opportunities I really need a designate office in my home. However, we do not have the space for that. So our master bedroom is having to do the job of being a dual functioning space. Maybe one day we can move into a larger home with a massive office and craft space for me. For now, this is how it needs to function. I do not want a bedroom that feels like a office, so coming up with stealth solutions is key.
I will be sharing all of the details I am doing to revamp this space and make it work for me, in time. For now adding some storage was a must. I will be sharing tomorrow the big way I added storage. For now I am talking about these cute little baskets.
Every fall we go to the same farm to pick apples. They give us these great baskets, which I of course kept because I am a hoarder with a big basement and a problem. It is OK, I have a home decor blog. That is my excuse and I am sticking to it. Anyways, these baskets are great, made well. I just wanted to make them a little cuter.
When in doubt with wanting to make something cute, add polka dots. Sure way to bring the cute factor. I had these standard circle labels.
I put them on sporadically on both baskets. Pushing them down to make sure they are tight to the basket.
Then, spray paint the baskets. I used white. I only did one coat because it was not possible to get these fully covered. So a rustic look works best with these.
Letting them dry and then peeling the labels off. It was really that simple to revamp these baskets.
I have seen painted, lines and polka dots on baskets in home decor stores like crazy. These are rough baskets for sure. With the handled, which I may do something with in the future. But the polka dots and white paint make these feel more done and perfect for a home.
It also is perfect for me to put all of my Cricut gear in. My plan is to up the organization with this, which I will get to.
Adding storage to a home is always a plus. Baskets are a home’s best friend. It is a place to store stuff, organize or hide things. Finding a way to do this low cost, and maybe add a little cute to your home is a bonus. Like I said, when in doubt with how to bring the cute factor… polka dots… always polka dots!
What are some sure solutions for adding storage for your home?
