Do you remember these baskets I showed you from my nursery? If you missed this post, you can read about it HERE.

Well, although I liked them just as is, I came across these cool baskets from Restoration Hardware when I was searching for laundry hamper ideas online.   Since my baskets originally came with fabric liners when I purchased them, I decided to put them back in.  But, before just putting them back in the baskets I needed to do some work.

The fabric liner had a lace border around the top edge that looked a little too girly for my baby boy’s nursery {that is why I removed them in the first place}.

So, I just removed the lace and buttons {I am keeping the buttons for future projects} by cutting it off very carefully and this is what I came up with….

Much better!

I knew I wanted to add numbers to the fabric liner, so I pulled up Word on my computer, typed up the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 {using the stencil font in size 325} and printed out the numbers.

I then cut out the black part of the numbers, creating a stencil to be used for painting on the numbers to the fabric liner. Man, this would be so much easier if I had a Cricket Machine!!!! I am really wanting one….maybe for Christmas or my Birthday….or just because I am a sweet wife to my Hubby! J

Once the numbers were cut, I was left with a pretty good lookin stencil. I cut around the outsides to get rid of excess paper to make application easier and then mixed up some acrylic paint.  I used Delta Ceramcoat Acrylic paint in Black and Delta Ceramcoat Acrylic paint in Espresso colors I had on hand. I attached my “stencil” to the fabric using push pins to keep it in place and also pulled the fabric tightly to make sure the paint went on smoothly.

I used a foam brush made for stencils I picked up at Joann’s using a 40% coupon making the pack of 2 only $.59 to apply the paint.  I let the paint dry for about 5-10 minutes and then removed the stencil.

This is what I came up with….

I am so thrilled!!!

What do you think?

I love the way the numbered fabric gives a vintage feel to the baskets.  The nursery is coming along…just a few more projects and we should be done.
I can’t wait to show you!

Cost of this project was $.59 for foam brushes. Everything else I already had on hand! The cost of the Restoration Hardware baskets are $239 for a set of three. I’d say I was being thrifty, don’t you?!? J

Hope you have a great weekend!
