Bedroom Wastebasket

For sometime I've been looking for the perfect wastebasket to place in my room.  Unfortunately, everything was either too white, too green, too wooden, too wicker, too plastic or too expensive.  So I stopped looking...

And then one day I spotted the perfect wastebasket.  It has beautiful, intricate details, a work of Art!






It has that perfect stone faux look; defined with crevices






 A plastic liner lines the inside so I never have to worry about using a plastic bag






 The colors cranberry and uniform blue are mused and softened with splashes of olive green and glazed with blackened bronze.  On the inside, the color boasts castle rock.






Not only is it perfect for my bedroom





It's perfect because it started with a box!










That was spray painted








And then plastered






Isn't it amazing what we can do when we set our mind to it...






After all, how often do we enjoy showing off our wastebasket?  LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!

It amazing to see what it started out as. This would be a great technique to use on planters too!

Love it Sherry! I've been doing some playing around with boxes lately(inspired by your shoebox makeover) and find it relaxing and fun. I just put it up in my latest post, Tiffany-style candy box.
Hope you'll make over to Frugal Treasures party going on now! : )

Sherry, these just get better and better. Wow, I mean, you did this with an old cardboard box! Does the plaster stick to the card ok, because I'm thinking about trying this to make a creepy old book, with an ancient cover.

Karah @ thespacebetweenblog said...

This is a truly awesome idea, Sherry!! You continue to amaze!!
