DIY Idea: Modern Dip-Dyed Baskets

DIY Idea: Modern Dip-Dyed Baskets

This DIY project has "Scandinavian Modern" written all over it!  It's also one of those "why didn't I think of that?" ideas.  The white and wood combo is at once classic, modern, and trendy.  For color lovers like myself, I'd suggest experimenting with bold hues - maybe even neon if you're feeling crazy!  

Leave it to Martha* to come up with something as simple and doable as this dip-dyed basket DIY.  All you need is a basket, a plastic bin to pour paint into, and enough paint to dip your basket into.  If you can't get the dip line as high as you'd like, they suggest using a foam paint brush to create a new line.

For the full tutorial, check out MarthaStewart.com.

Just for fun, let's take a poll: Would you use white paint or spice things up with some color?

*Well, the Martha Stewart design team, that is!
