I'm really disappointed in myself (or maybe just the boxes)... I was a bad girl and started picking at some of the places on the basket that was peeling, and I ended up ripping a huge piece off of one. Sad Sad.

That's okay, put another coat over it. And then, LEAVE THEM ALONE! I did the outside on one day, adn the inside on the next, to let the boxes dry thoroughly. What colour have you painted them? If you are using them as bathroom baskets, you could write "Ladies" or "Gents" on each. Find someone who will be in charge of them for you. I think I've been in charge of these for the last 4 weddings I've gone too. Go get all your bathroom basket goodies, then separate Men's & Women's into two bags. Give the baskets and the two bags to a friend/reliable family member at the rehearsal dinner or something, and it will be one last thing for you to worry about!  Grin

Plus, they'll be full of stuff... would anyone even see a missing patch?  Lay a piece of fabric in it, load it full of stuff, etc. Smiley

Hahah I'm HORRIBLE at picking at things, so it's been so hard to not pick at the peeling part. I haven't painted them yet; I still have to find paint. I hope I can find the right color (teal-ish) I'll probably have to glue the peeling part and then paint though. I like the idea of writing "Ladies" and "Gents" on them! I figured I would assemble the baskets before-hand to make them all pretty, but I guess it would be a better idea to have someone else be in charge of that, and to put them in a bag so nothing falls out on the way there. Sweets, the fabric idea is good too, if I decide I just can't stand how it looks without. I may just be like "screw it" and leave it how it is haha. I'm sure I'll have too much on my mind to care about the tiniest details.

YAYYY!!! I'm finally getting them painted! Yesterday I went to HobLob and bought a bunch of acrylic paint (errr 2 bottles... a blue and a yellow to mix.) I painted the outsides and then before painting the inside, I glued the pieces that I picked at. What a horrible mess that turned out to be! I spilled the bottle and ended up glueing 3 fingers on one hand together and 2 on the other hahhaa. Easy fix though, and then I painted the inside. Now I'm just waiting to go back to HL and get one more bottle of blue.
I didn't realize til later that the paint in the cylindrical bottles at Walmart are Acrylic too, and that if I went up into the attic I could probably find the right color. Dang. I got the artisty acrylic paint, but it was actually cheaper and I love the color it turned out. Thank goodness I got a light color that dried darker.

Oh good! I'm glad you were finally able to get them painted. I'm sure they'll turn out great!

Me too! *phew* The only thing I didn't like was that I used a bristle brush cuz I couldn't find a foam rolling brush around the house, so they have paint lines or whatever. After looking at them for a while, I decided... I just didn't care that much haha. They turned out a lovely color though. Now I just have to go find more crap to fill them with.
