Pretty In Pink

I had this little rectangular basket under the sink in our guest bathroom to hold those little things that seem to accumulate.  When I added the storage drawers the other day {here}, I took it out and put it on the side until I figured out what to do with it.

While getting tags ready for the holiday market, I put them in there temporarily and they fit perfectly!   I thought it would be a good idea to bring it with me.

Not wanting to use it in its plain, natural look, I decided to give it a coat of some watered down Antoinette chalk paint.

A little seam binding and some bling and I have another little storage piece!

Cost = $0.00, since I already had everything on hand!
