Happy Hour : Painted Baskets


Do these silvery baskets photographed by Martha Stewart take your breath away? This shape seems to be in every store this spring but it's never looked this glorious. Here's my Happy Hour suggestion - why not buy a can of metallic paint and work your magic? I'm headed to the basement to see what baskets I've got around. In the meantime, let's check out some basket painting inspiration.
