Brighten up your storage compartments!

Have you ever thought of how to make a room look different on a small budget? We’ve got just the idea for you! Paint your storage compartments to suit the ambience of your home!

You will need:

  • Straw baskets
  • Primer
  • Sandpaper
  • Spray paint
  • Cloth (Damp)
  • Newspaper/old sheet to paint on
  • Stencil of your choice


  1. Wipe down baskets with the damp cloth to ensure that there is no dust.
  2. Sand the straw baskets down very slightly to ensure the spray paint takes to it.
  3. Spray paint at least two even coats of your chosen colours to the baskets.
  4. Once the paint is dry, apply the stencil and spray a different colour to add shapes or words to your baskets!

This will brighten a room and attract many compliments from any visitors! Have fun!
