We've all done it...found exactly what you're looking for, only for it to not be the right color, finish or texture. In our case it was this copper colored basket:
We purchased five of these at our local Lowes on sale for $5.49, you can also find them here. We wanted galvanized metal baskets, so we purchased one can of Rust-oleum Hammered Spray Paint and gave each a total of three light coats.
Not including drying time, this project took 30 minutes to complete, saved us some dough and got us the look we wanted.
