i use baskets for just about everything. in fact, i don't even have a drawer for my socks! i keep everything from scarves to dog toys in baskets of all kinds, so this diy for painted baskets from the marion house book really stood out to me. every time i go thrifting, i now scour the isles for big baskets- i would especially love to find some large round ones like these pictured above.
aren't they beautiful? head on over to the marion house book to see the full tutorial.
and just for some added inspiration, i also love these dipped-dyed baskets from martha. oh, the possibilities!
