I needed a break from ‘regular’ posting and I think I got it lol
I really didn’t mean to not have Workin’ On It Wednesday Linky parties be silent for
oh 8 months
But I’m back!
So since it’s my first day back I wanted to show you a project that has lived in my head for a long time before it came out:
DIY Faux Ceramic Berry Baskets
I’ve seen these absolutely gorgeous ceramic Berry boxes for anywhere from $6-$30+
Left Image: Anthropologie $14 for small Right Image: Sur La Table $6.95
Now $6 is not much but factor in shipping and $6 EACH? I’d spend over $25 with shipping for just 3.
So I created my own for FREE. woot! Free is better than even $6.95!
All I did was save my generic grocery store berry baskets that my blueberries & strawberries come in.
I peeled off all labels & cut off the tops (they were ‘hinged’ on)
Then I took them outside and sprayed just the inside of the baskets.
This keeps the outside shiny & smooth (like ceramic). I will be giving these a quick spray with gloss spray to get more of a shiny look but for now these work!
I totally love them & while I do not suggest using them to actually store food they look ahhh-mazing on my “All American Mantle” (I’ll be blogging about some other elements on the mantle soon!)
What do you think?
you could even use different color spray paint to get a bright red or cool blue to match your decor!
