Hi, my sweet friends!
Here I am again, it is the third Thursday of the month and that means time for another Thrift Store Challenge!! Last month I shared how to use a plastic flower box as home decor because remember, I teamed up with more than 30 bloggers to provide some inspiration with our thrift store finds that we turned into home decor pieces.
This month I am bringing you a really easy and cute project, my favorite ones! I will talk about it later but first let me remind you how this Thrift Store Challenge works.
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
- There’s no monthly theme.
- There’s no budget to stick to.

Some months ago I went shopping to my favorite place, a flea market. There was a lady with some wicker baskets full of junk to sell and I thought to myself that those baskets were really cute. I wondered if she might be interested in selling them as they seemed to be just to hold all the stuff she had, but I decided to ask and she said yes! The best thing about them besides their cuteness was the price… can you believe they were 3€ each one? Those things are quite expensive here so of course I took all three.
Do you remember the post title? Right, how to update wicker baskets in 5 minutes and I say it literally. The process can’t be easier, so easy that I feel a bit silly writing about it because pictures talk by themselves.
I took a star stencil I created some time ago with my Silhouette Cameo, you know I am a huge fan of stars. I did some faux stars out of cardboard here and used the same stencil for my DIY star pillow cover.
I used some tape and a newspaper to protect the basket and some chalky spray paint similar to this one in white for the star.
Ta-da!! Love the updated baskets, they cost almost nothing, I didn’t make a huge mess and it was really fast, what else can I ask for?
Don’t you love the stars too?
I would have loved to keep them but they went to the apartment I was decorating.
Here’s one of them, you will find it in the post about how to get a bright look in your bedroom. The apartment was tiny but it looks totally different now.
The smallest bedroom has its own basket too. It can hold the pillows when going to bed and it looks lovely too.
Hope you enjoyed this little makeover and have been able to inspire you to transform little flea market finds.

And now for more thrifty goodness!
