Use Spray Paint To Revamp Roadside Finds

Use Spray Paint To Revamp Roadside Finds

Turn a plain basket into a dazzling picnic hamper

This basket and folding chair were roadside finds. All it took to upcycle them was a quick wash and spray.

We used Rust-Oleum 2X Ultra Cover Paint + Primer in Key Lime for the basket and Lagoon for the chair.

When you’re spraying, work in a well-ventilated area or outside on a still day and put down drop sheets. 

TIP When dealing with smaller items you can use a cardboard box to help prevent overspray
