Last week I was prepping myself for an IKEA trip. I always have to have a list or I get a little overwhelmed. And I saw Tell Love and Chocolate's painted IKEA GADDIS basket. I loved the idea. I had wanted a different basket to hold a few of Noah's toys in the living room and the basket was perfect.
I didn't want to make my basket too colorful since there are several other pieces in the living room that have a lot of color. I decided to use a little black paint to add some detail to the basket. I started by painting one "plus" on the side. Then I painted the next "plus" diagonal to the first one. I kept my pattern going around the entire basket.
I love how it turned out. It was very simple and inexpensive to do but I love the character that it adds to an otherwise plain basket. xo, Britt
