Have a wicker basket laying around?
Instead of throwing it out, why not reuse it? Keep magazines in here, the doggies toys, reuse it as a trash container to perfectly match the boudoir. Or like me, you can use it for the lint that comes out of your dryer. I mentioned in the video that this wicker basket has seen better days, it’s a little beat up….but for what I’m using it for who cares? There’s a clunky plastic container there now. I love to have pretty things around me…even when I’m doing my laundry. I also mentioned that you want to make sure you have a napkin with a background color that matches your spray paint. Yes, you can use chalk paint or acrylic but it’s so so much faster and easier to use a spray paint. I especially love to use these: http://amzn.to/2vdOm8E
You can click on that link and get the color that you want, you may want an off white or another lighter color. You always need to use a lighter color when working with napkins. This brand of spray paint? I’ve used it on shoes, fabric, wood, glass and plastic. I love NOT having to have 5 cans of spray paint sitting around when just the one would do the trick! And of course, we will want to look at the lovely selection of napkins…

This always happens! I want to stop writing my blog post and go buy all of these napkins! Inspiration is hitting me and it’s hitting hard!
Decoupage with Any Napkins you like
Did you know that can click on any link and enter a search phrase for what you’re looking for? How about looking up Punch Studio napkins? Or Michel Design, IHR or Cypress Home…
I could go on forever! But let’s not forget the most important tool in our arsenal. Napkin Decoupage glue…. http://amzn.to/2ufbWou
Here are a few other items that you may want in order to finish this project.
Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter http://amzn.to/2tfF6Q6
I’m listing this glitter which has all 3 types of Martha’s Arctic glitter because it seems to me that the 4.5 ounce bottle is selling for too much on Amazon. I wouldn’t buy it and I won’t pass along those kinds of Non-savings to you either.
Aqua Brush http://amzn.to/2tft0q3
Triple Thick spray glaze http://amzn.to/2ufk0oY
Chip Brushes http://amzn.to/2ufiPpz
And in case you’re looking for that Laser printer…..here’s my favorite: http://amzn.to/2uf9mPc
