Until our "help" arrived...
But we finished! It only took about 3 times as long to put everything together...
|$2.50/bin at Target. Beats the $6.99 for the cloth storage bins.|
2. Put paper or plastic inside so the paint doesn't spray through to the other side.
3. Put a string through the holes to hang the bins while you paint.4. Hang the bins far from your house, concrete, anything you don't want to turn the color of your paint.
TIP: Paint WITH the direction of the wind so you don't get paint in your face. Lesson learned.
Another TIP: Spray in quick swiping motion because if you spray too long in one spot, the paint gathers in the holes. Lesson also learned.
One more TIP: Do not drop a freshly painted bin on your pants. Paint does not come off. Lesson, apparently, not learned because I did this several times. No damage to the bins though, so I win.

Looks great in their room with their new bunk beds!
|I didn't get a picture with all of the painted bins, but you get the idea.|
