I found a few different baskets at the Dollar Tree, but I am just not a Neon Green
or Hot Pink kind of Girl. I really would prefer a nice galvanized
vintage wire basket. I have been fortunate to find a few,
but with popularity comes scarcity and high prices.
I will usually settle for white organizers but I really liked the shape of this basket
below and this was the only color available.
Here is the other one I liked.
The paint that I used is below
In MATTE NICKEL
This paint worked great.! It gives a slight grit finish.
NOT smooth like other spray paints. It even feels like metal.
I took the baskets outside to spray. I also painted a Locker Bin but I will share that later.
Here is another basket
This paint gave very good coverage.
It dried quickly I was impressed.
I was very impressed with the look and feel of the baskets.
I can honestly say they look even better in person.
On the above tray basket I used a different spray paint by Rust-o-leum. One that is more widely
available in the color Flat Antique Nickel.
Metallic Paint and Primer in one
The small square basket holds 4 of the Milk Bottle Vases from this project perfectly.

I had fun changing things around.
I will definitely do this again ! I am so happy with the way they turned out.
A more realistic use would be just a mail drop!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
They look great! ThanksReplyDelete
