My Personalized Bicycle Basket
Hey guys! And welcome to another blogpost in which I will show you my new bicycle basket that I personalised with a striking color. My old basket is made of reeds which I had for a long time but right now when summer is coming through here in the Netherlands I wanted something new and more colorful. I bought this metal basket at Xenos for only €8 while most actual bicycle baskets are way more expensive! The original color was pink but that didn’t matched with my bike so I decided to personalise it in a way I like.
How I made it:
– At first I spray painted the basket with a primer so that they yellow color will stay nice way longer.
– (optional) To give my basket a more used look I painted it with chalkbord paint so that the metal didn’t look too smooth anymore.
– At last I spray painted it in the color I wanted for 2 times.
– To secure my metal basket to my bike, I used black tyraps which match with my bike.
This is how you don’t have to spend alot of money on a simple bicycle basket that most bicycle shops sell for about €30. You can simply make it yourself and spray paint it in any colour you like!
