I took some time away from my paper crafting to finish this DIY project, the ugly hamper. My husband is a hard working guy and he gets very dirty. I don't want his dirty work clothes mixed with my clothes so he has been using this ugly hamper for years. I have searched and searched but have been unable to find another hamper that is large enough and sturdy enough to hold his work clothes. I finally just accepted the fact that the ugly hamper was here to stay.
Here is what it looked like
I hate to be critical but it was hideous! There was a sticker tag on the inside of the lid but I couldn't tell what year it was made. I am guessing is is 50-60 years old. I am sure housewives back in the 50's and 60's thought this was just the nicest hamper.
I decided to paint it to match our bathroom. The tile is tan, brown, blue and gray so I chose to paint the hamper tan and blue.
Here is the finished hamper. It's still ugly but at least it matches the decor better.
