Have a bunch of mismatched baskets sitting around? Why not gather them up and create a matching collection just in time for spring organizing or Easter decorating?
- baskets (thrift stores or your own stash)
- spray paint
- FrogTape® Delicate Surface
I first cleaned up my baskets since they were a bit dusty. Then sprayed each basket with a different color of spray paint around the middle/outside and let dry.
After 24 hours, I used FrogTape® Delicate Surface to create (and protect) a stripe around each basket.
Use a thumbnail or credit card to activate the patented PaintBlock® Technology, giving the edges of the tape a good seal the best you can with the woven basket texture.
Next I sprayed each basket inside and out with white spray paint.
You can remove the tape while paint is wet but I forgot and removed it about four days later without any problem.
Now instead of 3 junky baskets, I have a set of 3 cute matching baskets all ready for the Easter Bunny…

I love how you’ve pulled them all together, and this idea could work for all sorts of mismatched sets of things. Thanks, great inspiration!
