DIY painted storage basket

DIY painted storage basket

I am pretty sure there is no such thing as too much storage, and if you saw my supply of crafts you would know that I NEED more of it.  Although I am up to my eye balls in crafts, confetti and party supplies I am still super picky on what my storage containers looks like.  Whether it is a cute box, basket or shelves – I need it to be colorful and fun.
While browsing through IKEA I saw these adorable baskets.  When I see a cute basket I buy it, because there has to be SOMETHING I can put in it and I would file this under “cute” storage container (although it needed some color).  This painted basket only takes two steps and can really brighten up a room.
