Chalk painted basket- Monthly DIY ChallengeJanuary 14, 2015
It's time for the January Monthly DIY Challenge! This month, my blog friends and I are getting organized with creative storage solutions! We each chose some sort of storage container to create or update, so make sure you take a look at all of the fun DIY organizing projects at the bottom of this post!
For my project, I decided to update a basket that I've had for years! I bought it in college to store my massive nursing text books in. Back then I had lots of dark brown furniture and accessories (along with teal of course!) and this basket fit right in. Now, it's old, doesn't quite fit my taste anymore, and could use a little facelift!! It's perfect for storing blankets in, and I happen to be a blanket hoarder! There are warm cozy blankets hiding in almost every room of this house! I'm excited to now have a cute way to store them!
You might remember this basket from my Christmas home tour. I had it set up next to the fireplace with a festive blanket I found at Target last month (see, blanket hoarder!). I had actually never put the basket in this spot before, but I really like it there! It's found it's new home!
