This basket has been redone a few times but has finally found its true identity. It started out as a bright orange plastic coated wire easter basket. I picked it up at a thrift store and thought I could spray paint it to look like a classy metal wire basket. So I set off to do just that.
I got some spray paint and I went to town. It looked beautiful and I loved it! Not only did I love it, but the kids loved it too. It was soon the designated carrier for all their toys. I know full well that any decoration in arms reach of the kids will become a part of play time. What I didn’t know was that as they played with the basket, the paint, which was not designed to go on plastic, was slowly chipping off.
The ending result was far cooler than any of the previous basket versions.
The original orange color peeked through and gave it just a hint on Halloween. Subtle and classy yet festive non the less. If you have or come across a plastic easter basket, give it second thought for it could become something saweet.
