When I had the wallpaper added to our tiny powder room, I decided to give the wooden waste basket that is in the room a quick update. It was left here by the previous owner, and when we moved six years ago, I spray painted it and added some decoupaged graphics. With the navy and green color scheme the room now is sporting, I thought a green waste basket with a nice white monogram would be more fitting.
Jordan and I both had to make a contribution to this project, but it was really simple. Jordan used her Cameo Silhouette to make a monogram for me.
Then I spray painted the basket a shade of green that matched the gingham in the sink skirt. I just happened to have the color on hand and didn’t have to buy it. I let it cure for a couple of days. When it was time to add the monogram, I simply centered the letters on one side.
Then I gently peeled away the paper. That was all there was to it.
Now, I have a custom waste basket that was easy to DIY with just a little effort, and it adds a touch of class to the already classy powder room.
