Easy DIY: ombre storage basket

30 Mar 2017

Autumn colours have inspired this easy ombre basket DIY, painted in layers of burnt reds and dusky corals from the Resene Multi-finish collection. It's a pretty way to add storage to your living room or bedroom, and will take less than an hour to create. 

You will need: a woven basket, paintbrush and Resene testpots in Resene Spitfire, Resene Merlot, Resene Coral Tree and Resene Paper Doll.

This project is as easy as can be. Take your paintbrush and start painting the colours in layers from the bottom up. To create the ombre effect, use the colours from the darkest to the lightest colour, starting with Resene Spitfire and finishing with Resene Paper Doll. Paint with light brushstrokes at the top to give it a faded look, and let the paint dry. Use it as a pretty storage piece in places that tend to clutter up.
