DIY Project For Beginners – Spray Painting

I liked the industrial look of this wire basket that I had in the powder room.

A can of gold spray paint and a few minutes of your time is all that is needed to upgrade a metallic wire basket into something simply glamorous. This is actually the perfect project for the entry level diy-er as it’s easy, quick and inexpensive. I know that a spray paint may be something terrifying for a few of you, but it’s a good starting point as there is nothing more to it than spraying. Chose a wire basket of any size, shape and color, they all work! And when spraying, make sure to wear a mask, to cover your eyes and hands and to work outdoors.

place it under the sink for our guests to throw in the used hand towels.

A tip for obtaining the best result is to first spray a couple of coats of paint and then turn the basket upside down and spray again to cover the bottom parts of the wire.
