I was storing my scraps in ordinary shoeboxes. That isn't very fun. Then I remembered my love for spray paint. These baskets were plastic (bright green, from my mom's cast-off spring cleaning/organizing), so I started with a coat of plastic spray paint. It was white. Then I added a coat of lilac non-plastic spray paint.
This was after one application. I was at the end of a can of paint and so it turned a little splotchy (on the inside). I had to sand out some runs and then recoat the whole thing.
That's what happens when you paint outside at night without enough light...you fix your mistakes the next day.
This isn't even all my scraps. I could've used 2 more of these baskets to contain everything.
