How gorgeous are these hand painted baskets? I’ve been wanting to give this project a go for ages, and I’m so happy with the results :)
I've always been a campaigner for living in 'organised chaos', and for this reason my house is full of storage solutions. I don't think it's realistic to live in a minimalist 'showroom' style home, because you'd spend your whole life tidying up rather than enjoying it! We naturally need lots of stuff in our living areas (whether its remotes, paper, mail, toys, coasters, pens, etc) and the way I keep on top of it is having storage baskets dotted around the place. At the end of the day I throw everything into its nearest one, and then once a month or so I go through them and have a clear out. For example, each evening the toys go in a basket in the corner of the lounge, and I have a lovely clear bench because all the bits and pieces that people dump on the bench go in a basket to the side. I feel like it clears the physical space and my mind, making everything feel a bit more relaxed and ordered. Happy times all around!
So why not take these storage baskets to the next level and add pops of beautiful colour? You might like to add bright eye catching colour, lovely soft pastels, or contrasting monochromes. You can also tailor the look so that it's the classic dipped style, or perhaps you might like geometric shapes or block colour. Either way they look gorgeous and have that lovely hand crafted look.
Oh and did I mention how easy this project is? All you need is the baskets, some good masking tape, paint, and brushes.
