My First Can 'O Spray Paint
I have been coveting this bench and its metallic bins in my Serena & Lily catalogue for months.
Now, the bins are not so expensive ($28 apiece), but the bench clocks in at nearly $1000 and I really don't have a great home for it in my entryway.
When I opened the latest Martha Stewart Living Magazine, I was similarly smitten with these metallic baskets and accessories.

So, what do you know? I went through an entire can of spray paint this weekend. And, yes, it was my very first can of spray paint.
I used Martha's recommendation: Krylon Premium Metallic Spray, in Sterling Silver, $4.75, www.michaels.com. It's quite bright (think aluminum foil) but looks just right, especially when mixed with bits of wood.
I started with a set of these simple baskets from Michaels.
I liked seeing the rattan handles on Martha's pieces, so I taped off the handles.
