D.I.Y Dipped Baskets: just the perfect touch for getting organized this spring

Awhile back I saw these cute round baskets at West Elm & knew they were just what I wanted to hide some clutter in my loft. (Even though I still haven't gotten them I will in the near future!).

While they are super useful for storing knick knacks, what really drew me to them was the unexpected pop at the bottom. I love how that little bit manages to take a simple basket and make it really special. It doesn't hurt that they are really on trend right now & it shows no sign of stopping! All the stores like Target to Horchow are selling versions of their own too- which most are white, but even if they had a little of color to them I think it would be a cost effective way to add a pop of color to your room!

It seems everyone has different ideas on how best to achieve this look when it comes to DIY.

Martha Stewart took the dipped name seriously with her detailed tutorial.

Then I found this one that figured the pouring method was a better way to go. Either way, this trend is the way to go if you need a stylish storage solution!

peace & love,
