diy : To make one, start with a basket -- odds are, you already have one that could use a makeover. Working outside to avoid breathing in fumes, quickly and evenly spray the basket with silver paint, and let it dry for a few hours. Spray-painted silver, these baskets look like boutique finds but were created in minutes. Use them as totes or for storage. (You can also spray paint straw accessories like hats, totes, and slippers.) $24
A few years ago I bought a wicker chest from Canadian Tire. It hung out in storage for a few years after my puppy turned the bottom drawer into a chew toy! After applying some Annie Sloan paint and spray paint to the wicker drawers it now serves as a great storage unit in my family room! No sanding required .. Yay chalk paint!!!
