I added more tape, directly over the white and a bit above so I could paint a narrow stripe of navy (nautical). Make sure the white paint is thoroughly dried before taping over it!

Again, remove the tape immediately.  This paint dries quickly.  I really loved the white and navy, but I decided to do a bit of aqua (Cascade), to go with the aqua blue that was on the walls.

So here are the finished baskets with only one coat of paint for each color.

Just enough of a little color, without overdoing it!
