Just checking in on this gorgeous Sunday afternoon to share a little project I did for my entertainment center.
I've been looking....and looking....and looking...for grey storage baskets to hold my DVD's. My entertainment center is all black and the walls are grey, so I wanted to keep it simple and go with the same color family.
With no luck on finding grey baskets, I finally gave up and bought these from Target in blue, hoping they would tie in with the blue pillows on my couch.
(notice it's not on my couch anymore)
I filled up the baskets, placed them on the shelves of the entertainment center, and stared at them.
They were too blue....too...Florida Gators blue..... Not the look I was going for.
I didn't want to return them, so naturally, I painted them!
I still had extra paint samples from when I was searching for the perfect grey to paint the living room walls.
I have an obsession with grey. So what?!
This is Benjamin Moore "Moonshine"
which actually looks white....and it pretty much is....which is why I didn't use it on the walls.
I just painted the outside of the bins since you wouldn't be able to see the inside at all.
I painted 3 coats and let them dry for 2 days before I put them back on the shelves.
One problem, I only had enough paint for 4 baskets......and I have 8.
So here is what it looks like now....
I might get another sample of slightly darker grey paint and have a gradient look going on.
To Be Continued....
I hope everyone remembered to Spring Forward!
