So after I show you this really easy West Elm inspired graphic basket, be sure to browse my talented friends projects and then enter the giveaway on any one of our sites. (The rafflecopter is the same on all of them.)

WEST ELM INSPIRED GRAPHIC BASKET

One of the things I love most about knock offs is that you can take 2 things that strike your fancy and blend them together to make something that will work for you.

There were 2 baskets that I loved from West Elm.  I liked the shape of one, and the pattern this one, so I married the two together and created this one for about 10 bucks!

Supplies: 

  • A basket: I found this one at Michael’s and of course used my 40% off coupon.  I also went on a day when they were having an additional 20% off your purchase, so I got an even better deal.
  • Craft paint
  • Spray paint for the base coat.  I needed white for the design I was creating.
  • Painters tape.
  • a sponge.

Step 1: Give your basket a light coat of white spray paint all over.  I taped off the handles first because I wanted the handles to be natural on my finished basket.

Step 2: Place tape diagonally around your basket. Keep in mind the areas that will end up with color and be sure that the edges of your tape are on the outside of that line. I used a marker to help me so I could keep track. It can get confusing seeing some of your strips of tape so close together. (You will be applying the color in 2 sessions.)

Step 3: Dab the paint on with a sponge making sure to never swipe toward the tape line. This will avoid getting paint under the tape. Remove the tape and let your paint dry.

Step 4: Once your paint is dry, tape again so that the opposite sections will now receive the colored paint. Use the edges of the already painted area to guide where you place the tape.

Apply your colored paint to these areas and remove the tape. Let it dry.painted basket with graphic designAnd there you have it! I added a plastic tray and a colorful houseplant to my basket and I’m loving the shot of color and texture that it has added to my living room.west elm inspired graphic basket

She says, “One of the things I love most about knock offs is that you can take 2 things that strike your fancy and blend them together to make something that will work for you.” That’s exactly what Corey did with this West Elm knock off! She found a cheap basket from Michael’s with the shape she wanted and then painted it with the design she wanted – and all for $10! I love how it looks with a potted plant inside! […]
