Today I want to share with you the transformation of an ugly thrift store laundry hamper...
I saw this hamper at Salvation Army. I bought it because it was cheap, narrow, had storage, had detail and it was in excellent condition. I knew I could use it for something else besides a hamper if I needed to, maybe as a table somewhere.
It's made out of some kind of heavy plastic. The inside is clean and has no odor.
The bottom is vented. It's brown so I know it will distress nicely.
I saw potential.
I painted it with white chalk paint and what a transformation!
White paint makes details pop!
I decided to paint a gray grain stripe on the top.
That led to painting the front panels gray also. I kid you not, I rarely have a plan.
I usually start a project and see what happens.
I added some knobs and my husband cut a notch from the bottom to give it more detail.
A happy little hamper...
So what do you think? Did you see potential before I painted it?
Thank you so much for stopping by Thrift My House!
