One quick + clever idea: metallic baskets

As we enter the holiday season, things seem to be a-glittering almost everywhere you look. In the bleak darkness of winter, the little bit of extra sparkle really can add a bit of much needed warmth and light. I absolutely loved this simple, clever idea from one of the crafting gurus at Martha Stewart earlier this summer. A plain woven straw basket gets a glamorous makeover with a quick coat of metallic spray paint. I'd love to have a couple of these in my living room for magazines or an extra large one for firewood. It could be fun to experiment with pattern and create stripes using tape on the baskets before painting too. See the original tips and instructions here
