Makeover Monday | Wire Basket Update

Hello everyone! 
I hope you all had an amazing Memorial Day weekend.
I have been searching for the perfect baskets for our entry way for quite sometime.
As you may recall from the entry design post, I originally planned on having gold baskets underneath our entry way table.
I wasn't able to find any gold baskets that I liked AND that would fit underneath. 
I found these baskets that were the perfect size at Target but I didn't love the color.
They blended into the gray background too easily.
So I thought, why not paint them?
After seeing how the silver blended into the gray background I decided I wanted more of a pop of color and thought black would be a better fit than gold.
It fit in with the color scheme of the entry and living room and matched the black knobs of the entry way table.
I scored the baskets when they were on sale and picked up some black spray paint.
I went over the baskets twice with the spray paint and gave them plenty of time to dry.
I went with a satin finish so they had a bit of shine once they dried.

I absolutely love how they turned out!
The black makes the baskets really stand out.

Now our guests have somewhere to put their shoes and keep them safe from Scout.
How do you think they turned out?
