We are always looking for inexpensive and creative ways to store and organize things in our homes. Take this basket for example, we knew it would be perfect to store bath towels near the tub.

This basket was free-to-us, as it at one time was filled with delicious edibles in the form of a gift. Although the basket looks creamy white, the willow takes on a decidedly yellow hue.

We opted to give the basket an update using a gray wash finish. This way the basket would blend in with our bathroom decor and it would have an aged finish –  which is our favorite look. You can read how to create your own DIY gray wash HERE.

Now our beautiful basket look great perched by the bathtub. Towels are now just an arms-length away.

The gray wash finish makes the basket look vintage too. Our dreams are filled with beautifully authentic, antique French baskets…but our budgets are filled with creating the look for ourselves.

  1. Definitely one of my favorite projects! As you know I love, love, love baskets so I can’t wait to give a few of my tired baskets completely fresh feel. Hugs, CoCo

  2. This is so pretty! I love how the gray wash looks on that basket. Nicely done ladies!

  3. I do the same thing when I receive gift baskets. I always find some place to reuse it and holding towels is a great basket repurpose. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.
