Spray Painted Basket

It was already 4.30pm and I wanted to do a quick project and something to get me going. I have had little energy today, most of which disappeared when out shopping fabric for my room. 

The basket I got for free at a give-away hall by the local dump yard, where I earlier had found things like this. It was simple and looked fine, but I wanted it to be a bit more special. I went outside on the balcony and lay out an old bed sheet, which I use for painting on. 

I started with a layer of spray paint.

Then I waited 2-3 minutes before I did a layer of blue spray paint. I had gotten this a few weeks ago for some lamps that will go in my bedroom.

I decided to do two layers 2.3 minutes later.

And then it was finished.

It is amazing how fast it went. And what a big difference. I am really starting to be a fan of spray paint! It went super fast, only having to wait 2-3 minutes between each layer. I really understand why so many bloggers swear to spray paint instead of normal paint.

Have you done any project using spray paint? I would LOVE to see, so please post a link in the comments so I can check it out!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love the blue you chose. I am becoming a big fan of spray paint, too. Amazing how it can change things!

    1. You are welcome! I might have to invest in another colour soon! or my whole apartment might turn blue!

  2. Your basket turned out so much prettier in the blue! Baskets are the best thing to paint with spray paint. I am such a HUGE fan of spray paint, I really need to buy it in bulk. LOL!

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment! It did turn out great, and I will probably try to find other free things to spray paint! I have been spray painting two lamps as well - post to come soon.

  3. It looks great! I never used spray paint. I really need to try. Blue is a great choice. I love it.
