#486...neon bike basket

I saw this neon painted basket DIY tutorial on Harper's Bazaar, and decided to try the technique on my bike basket. I started with this Electra Basket.
I taped and papered off the portion that I wanted to leave unpainted.

I decided to go with a yellow neon paint, similar to the Harper's Bazaar basket.
I found this spray paint in my garage, so I used it.

I sprayed the basket in several thin coats.

I let it dry for a few hours, removed the tape and paper, attached the embellished basket to my Townie, and took it for a whirl.
