Diaper Basket

My older sister Ashley is having her second daughter any day now! Over the past couple of months we have done some projects to put in the nursery. I mainly watch her, but I am there for support!
She used this basket with her first daughter to hold diapers. Her nursery is going to have turquoise accents so the bin needed a makeover.

 She found this great turqoise wethered wood paper at Hobby Lobby.
She traced all of the sides (We had to piece some paper together on the longest side).

 Add a little Mod Podge onto the Wood and stick the paper on. Wood Glue would also work great and cause less bubbling.

After the paper dried we added another layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper

Thats all!  You could also do the inside to make it look like a real wooden basket, but we got lazy and figured it would be covered up by lots of diapers!

What do you think?
Happy Friday.
