Makeover Cheapo Baskets - NO PAINT NEEDED


 
Did you ever wonder (like I did) how to make those cheap looking wicker baskets look more Prim. Here's an easy & cheap way of doing just that... with no paint .

Supply List:
*Basket of your choice ( You can find them cheap everywhere)
*Empty glass Jar ( I used an old pickle jar)
*Apple Cider Vinegar
* Couple of steel wool pads ( Brought it at the $$ store)
*Foam brush

Take an empty glass jar, fill it 3/4 with apple cider vinegar , add about 2- steel wool pads. Let this mixture sit over night.

Now I might suggest you take your supplies outside to finish, unless you don't mind the smell of vinegar in your home. Take your foam brush, dip it into the vinegar and paint your basket. You'll see it change almost immediately . The more times you apply the mixture to your basket, the darker it gets. For my basket above I applied about 2 coats.

It's that easy. Now you won't hesitate to buy those ugly basket next time you're at a yard sale or thrift store.

Enjoy:)
