I wanted to be sure I shared the tutorial for our “fabric basket facelift project”, which resulted in some one-of-a-kind storage in our master bedroom makeover.
When my husband made our built-in wall closet, he left cubbies for me to insert decorative baskets. However, when it came time to buy some that I liked, buying 6 of them seemed like such a money-sucker and I settled on some inexpensive fabric baskets from Amazon. (Exact ones, HERE.)
I knew I wouldn’t like them, but was hoping genius would strike and I’d find some thrifty way of making them pretty.
It took longer than I care to admit for an idea to finally pop in – but it was well worth the wait.
When I shared my thoughts with the hubs, he came across some beautiful wood in his stash that he could cut up into strips for me. All it took was adhering the wood to the face of the baskets, and our bedroom storage went up all sorts of levels.
Let me show you how we pulled it off – because I’m certain you have some fabric baskets that could use a little facelift. 😉
First, I removed the handle on the basket so I would have a smooth surface to work with.
Then I gathered the prettiest pieces of wood I could find in my pile.
I laid them all down on the collapsed baskets in the arrangement I wanted.
Then, I simply spread wood glue to the back side (not too much, not too little) of each wood piece, and placed it back in its rightful place on the face of the basket.
I needed some weight to press down on the wood and baskets, so my husband and I gathered anything that we could find to place on top while the wood glue dried.
After putting my house back together, the baskets were secure and placed in the cubbies of our closet.
Really such a simple project and can be an inexpensive (or free) way to spruce up your storage. After 1 month later the wood pieces are still secure and none have come loose at all.
