Organize your Magazines in a Colorful Basket

I’ve been going crazy seeing so many magazines lying around the house, it was a mess. So I finally decided to do something about it. I used a simple basket I found at IKEA and painted it with lots of colors using acrylic paint.

The basket came in a natural material without any finish, so all I had to do is clean it a bit with a dry cloth and start painting.

If you want to paint your baskets in just one color, I recommend using spray paint, it’s faster and easier.

My project was a little more complicated because I wanted to use more than one color. It didn’t take me a long time because the basket is really small and simple. I just needed to wait longer until it dried and add two layers of each color.

Now all the magazines are organized and in the same place, I always know where they are. No more mess, YAY!
