Spray Paint Ombre Basket


OK, first a disclaimer that this was really hard to photograph and I am noticing the ombre part of this project didn’t show up very well!


This pic is probably the best one showing the ombre look…in person the basket looks great!


This is how the basket started out…90% off after Christmas clearance at Hobby Lobby (99 cents!).   It is pretty sturdy and I am going to use it on a shelf in my craft room to hold special threads for serger projects.


I used three colors of Valspar spray paint with primer…tropical oasis, exotic sea and peacock blue.  First I covered the basket with several coats of the exotic sea, then did a lighter coat of tropical oasis at the bottom.  I finished it off with a quick coat of peacock blue around the top of the basket. 


Even though it doesn’t show up well in the pics, I really like the way it turned out.  Noticeable yet subtle.


I love the way it looks!


This last picture shows the color differences the best I think.


I might be linking to some of these great parties!
