Maybe you've come across the IKEA Fladis basket. It wasn't until I saw Martha Stewart's silver-painted Fladis baskets that I thought - fun Happy Hour project! Let's take a look at how I gave it a little flower power.
Price reduced to $9.99 at IKEA in Emeryville, CA. Baskets can also be folded in half.
I used plain white old house paint for the background.
In honor of the Woodstock concert 50th anniversary this month , I thought daisies would be cool. Use a pencil to draw out the design and color it. The easy part was that if I wanted to change something, paint easily covers off mistakes. The hard part is hard to get a straight line with the seagrass.
Happy summer planter in our family room. If you use left over paint, this happy hour will cost $10 for the basket. Depending on your design, this could take multiple happy hours. I'd love to see what you come up wth for your Fladis basket.
