I painted it black, added the knobs I had (I still plan to buy some new cute season specific knobs), and strung some beads to give it some flair. The best part is that the beads aren't permanently strung, so I can always switch up the look of this with different color beads, a different color/fabric/style garland or as I mentioned - swapping out knobs!!
This cheap 50 cent basket started off dull and lifeless.
Again, I painted it black, wove a ribbon throughout the basket and mounted my choice of flowers to the front.
Looks great after a bit of TLC!
