Numbers on baskets

Today I was looking at the shelf-room divider that RN and built, and decided I was going to add a little personal touch to the basket on there.
I love adding personal touches to the things I love and use, so today was time for a little projects.
Children napping...check
parents napping...check
dogs napping...check
See, I told you this was an ideal time for me to get some paint out.
I had this 2 samples that I got for free a year or two ago. Love these things...they have a brush built in!
Nice.
So I painted the number 7  and let it dry.
Why the number 7? 
And now I am done!
Just in time for my nap...(yeah right!)
I had the basket for years, and now this built in shelf in the master doubles as my dresser.

You see, those boxes on the shelf are actually just cardboard boxes I got at the store. They are very sturdy, and with some dropcloth and a a little glue gun, this are now my "drawers".


Stay Frugal,

Love it the project and that you had a house full of napping people that allowed you to complete it :)

You know I'm ALL ABOUT painting numbers on baskets! Such a cute addition. Your shelving unit looks great now.

Love your tribute to 7 and the box idea too. I may try that for my craft stuff!

Isn't it wonderful getting some undisturb time to do stuff we love to do?! The basket looks great on the shelf!

Why can't I just think up a quick and simple embellishment!? Everything I do turns into a detailed 2 day project (at least)! Your basket turned out great and I enjoyed reading about the number 7 and your cross collection too. Sweet.
