Operation Escalones {#6} – Spray Paint Basket

Welcome back!

This Operation Escalones project (Don’t know what I’m talking about? Go here!) was super simple but made a big difference in Ty’s office.

Ty just moved into a new office last month and his personal space is much smaller than it used to be…which is a good thing. Much less space to fill and much more personal. It’s definitely the perfect size.

His mom found this odd plant (she calls it the Dr. Seuss plant) and thought it would be cool in the corner of his office. The basket it came in, though, was a little…boring.

So we took the plant out of the basket (no easy task) and we were going to find a new basket until I found a can of black spray paint. I decided to paint the basket instead! You know spray paint and me…we’re pretty tight.

I used the same spray paint tool that I used in this post. Again, I am so glad I bought this tool!! Seriously, it was like $3 at Walmart. Get one.

This is what it looked like before…



As soon as I sprayed the first patch, I knew it was a great idea to paint the basket.


I didn’t paint inside because it’s filled with all kinds of fillers and the plant itself.

It looks much cleaner and more suitable for the office.



Now look at the office all pulled together…voila!



Just a simple fix, but it made a huge difference!

Are any of you as obsessed as I am with spray paint? Did anyone buy the new tool yet? Tell me about it!

I have yet to buy that tool, but I want one. I can see why she calls it a Dr. Seuss plant. Your simple fixes are so inspiring.
