For whatever reason, I have had one heck of a time trying to decorate my room. For about the first year I lived here, everything I used in it was either black, white, grey or some other shade of neutral. I was completely incapable of making any decisions when it came to color or pattern. And so the rest of my house got decorated while my room sat mostly sad and abandoned. Last spring, in my attempt to actually do something to it, I purchased a grey cabinet type piece of furniture from a flea market that I decided I would use as a wardrobe and fill with baskets to keep my socks, mittens, scarves, and unmentionables. I finally determined that I would like to include touches of pale pink and emerald green as well because all of the neutral was feeling a little somber to me. So because I was feeling I needed a pop of color in my cabinet, I embarked on an adventure to paint two of the baskets I bought for it.
They started out being plain old basket color. They have since changed a few times with spray paint. Ballet Slipper by Krylon was the last color I used for all over before I went crazy with craft paint.
I didn’t worry about making it super perfect because I was inspired by these which seemed handmade.
I am pretty happy with it because while it is most certainly not perfect, it gives my “wardrobe” the touch of color I think it needed.
