Hello! This is Megan from Homemade Ginger and I’m back with another thrifty DIY. I love blogging all about how to make lovely things without spending a fortune and I’m mildly obsessed with the thrift store. My latest thrift store makeover was so simple but I’m loving it!
I found these basket planters at Goodwill for less than $2 each. They were good quality and lined with plastic so I knew that they were a steal. I wanted to do something with them with paint, so I started brainstorming. I love the tribal print theme right now and the weave of the baskets created a great base to add some paint for some tribal-inspired designs.
I left the brown basket as is and just added in some white acrylic paint for a cross/plus design. I did a few coats of the white and then once it was dry, I lightly sanded it to give it a slightly aged look. This photo is just after one coat of paint.
I spray painted the lighter colored basket white to make it a little more modern. Then, I added some black acrylic paint to create a tribal pattern.
