How to Paint Woven Baskets with Acrylic Paint

I’ve been spring cleaning and organizing all the things.  One of the things I’ve realized is I have an abundance of baskets.  Baskets are so versatile and are such a great storage essential.  While I have tons of baskets, they are pretty boring.  I decided to give some of my outdated baskets a pop of color with fun patterns and shapes and today I’m going to show you how to paint woven baskets with acrylic paint.
