Decorating with numbers is all the rage right now, thanks to Pottery Barn. I have seen so many great Pottery Barn knock-offs all over the web, and I think it is time that I get in on the action.
I found these great baskets at our local thrift store for $4.00 each. My plan is to paint them each with a number using a stencil, then hang them on my kitchen wall. I have very little storage space in my kitchen, so they would hold things like dishcloths, paper products, foil and ziplock bags, etc. I am contemplating spray painting them black, then making the number on each of them white. The wall they will be hanging on is a deep red, and all the cupboards in my kitchen are white. I have a glass topped, rod iron table with 2 black chairs right in front of the wall I want to hang them on. Here is a small glimpse of the area I am talking about.
What do you think? I need your input–should I spray paint them black? White? Keep them natural with a black number? Should I hang them horizontally or make a square, hanging 2, with 2 directly below them? I am leaning toward painting them black with a white number, and hanging them in a row horizontally. What do you think?
