Vintage Wicker Hamper Redo...and...Redo

This tired old hamper was in need of a facelift. I thought by painting the wicker white, adding new feet cut down from spindles...painting the original top and feet a glossy black would be all it would take to give this hamper a new flashy look. What a let down...I abandoned that idea before even completing. I covered over the wicker with a bold fabric. The first set of feet I had chosen...gone. The original top...gone! I found some different spindles to use for feet and chopped up an old picture frame to make the new top. I am still messing around trying to find the right latch...maybe a tassel to use as a pull to lift the lid. Now this hamper has a dual purpose...the cushioned top provides a place to sit.
