It all started when I bought a shelf with four canvas bins at a yard sale. I thought it would be perfect for craft room storage:
It was a little dingy (okay, a lot dingy), but I thought I could just wash the bins.
Then one night, I woke up at around 1:00am with a brilliant idea. (I know... I'm crazy like that.) PAINT! I could paint those dirty bins and give them a whole new life.
What do you think?
First I penciled on the designs I wanted, then filled them in with regular old acrylic craft paint. It was easy! And I think it helped with the tedium that I was unreasonably giddy. I may or may not have been doing ballerina leaps each time I ran to the bathroom to wash out my paintbrushes. I told you I was giddy about this project.
UPDATE: I have gotten a lot of questions about the type of paint I used. Here's a pic, for those of you who are visual like me:
