8 DIY Hampers And Laundry Baskets That Aren’t Eye Sores

A hamper or a laundry basket is a piece that is necessary for every home, we all have dirty laundry form time to time. Some of us build in such pieces into dresser but not everyone has a spare item at hand or space for a whole dresser. If you don’t have it, you may go for a separate hamper but who said that such a piece should be ugly? We’ve prepared some ideas to make a new and modern hamper that won’t spoil the interior, or even renovate an old one so that nobody would believe it used to be an old wreck. Here are some ideas that will help you DIY a piece that isn’t an eye sore.

These simple baskets are kept more laconic using usual paint but still look much bolder and modern this way. How to achieve this look? Easily! Attach some tape and paint the top or the bottom of the basket to give it a fresher look. The color can be different, it’s totally up to you but I’d recommend something bold and contrasting. Enjoy!

This hamper is basically not of fabric but it uses rope, so I decided to include the piece here, besides, it has a cool look. The whole hamper is made of a usual box and some rope that was later painted with an ombre effect. Here the authors wanted a girlish look, so they used pink but you may go for any other color that you like.
