DIY Chevron Laundry Basket

Chevron Laundry Basket | Henry Happened Who wants a boring old laundry basket when you can have a fancy one with gold chevrons? That’s what I told my hubby when I announced I would be needing his clothes hamper for a stencil project. He just rolled his eyes and shrugged, like all good blogger husbands do.

Despite being a total stencil novice, of course I said yes when Cutting Edge Stencils asked me to try one of their stencils – and give one away!! (Skip to the end for that info.)
chevron laundry basket Chevron Basket with Stencil I stared at my chevron stencil for a month. Not being brave enough for a focal wall project (plus I’m a renter) the humble laundry basket saved the day. We just heavily taped the stencil to the basket – under and on the sides – and gave it a light coat of spray paint. Everything is better with gold spray paint, right?

    I just discovered your blog (hopped over here from The Sweetest Occasion) and I love how much talent you bring to the “do” in DIY. Can’t wait to see what comes next! My favorite stencil: the heritage grill.

    I love so many of them that I’m having a hard time choosing a favorite! I especially adore the Poppy Allover, the Julia Allover, the Peony Stencil, and, of course, I’m a sucker for all things Chevron. The laundry basket looks fantastic. Thank you for hosting such a wonderful giveaway!

    This is perfect, I would choose the chevron because my daughter wants to paint her bedroom or perhaps curtains in a chevron pattern. Fingers crossed. Thanks for the give away.
