Is there that one piece you want for your home? When you find it you think to yourself “why is it so dang expensive?” Well that one piece for me was a vintage French laundry basket! So as any good DIYer does I found an easy way to recreate a vintage French laundry basket. And I want to show you the simple and inexpensive process to make your own.
What You Need To Recreate A Vintage French Laundry Basket
I used a round metal laundry basket I found at the thrift store. This was paired with a plant stand I found at the Dollar Store.
The Steps To Recreate A Vintage French Laundry Basket
Three Easy Steps
Step One – Paint
I spray painted both the basket and the plant stand black.
I like to say my life is held together with zip ties and a prayer! And that’s what I used to attach the basket to the plant stand. Six zip ties fed through the holes on the plant stand and around the wires of the basket bottom.
I rubbed a little Dixie Belle diamond mousse in silver on the basket and the plant stand to make it appeared aged. You can also use Rub & Buff in silver.
A Vintage French Laundry Basket Recreated Easily
I can’t wait to use my new old looking French laundry basket in my laundry room! It certainly helps my makeover budget to have created this from inexpensive pieces.
