I do like the way that the basket turned out. My problem lies in where to put it. I have yet to find a place where I think it looks nice. It's too large to place on a wooden dresser and it doesn't really too nice on our cream colored carpeting. Perhaps I should have chosen a smaller basket to paint. Hmmm... So...until I figure something out, it sits on our cream colored carpeting and holds our Wii controllers and accessories. Who knows, it may get painted a different color!
