Quick Way to Update a Waste Basket

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.

 

Take care.
