Hello again! Can I tell y’all how much I love meeting you here every day?? If only I could keep it up! If you’re just joining this fun series, I’m sharing a thrifty makeover every day in March. It’s madness! Today I’m sharing a do-over of a DIY wood caddy I built in the Fall. It was part of a tool challenge where we were creating Fall-themed projects. I made this cute little wooden tote from scraps and an old chair spindle:
It was great for decorating with a Fall theme. I also made this green one:
Not so great, I guess. I put both in my shop and the white one sold right away but this poor green one didn’t stand a chance. It sat there all Fall and all through the Holidays. I finally brought it home last month and gave it a do-over:
In white of course.
I also added a little detail to the front this time…
This started out as this hardware I took off of a piece of furniture a while back:
I never throw any of that stuff away, and I was happy to find it again!
After spray painting it, I used my silhouette to add the number 2:
And painted it in with black acrylic paint (affiliate).
I liked this fine as is just painted in the white, but it’s little details like this that make pieces unique.
A couple of these chair spindles were my jumping off point for these totes…
I love them against the white.
Much better than the green, and it sold the first week back in my shop. (Hence the reason I paint so many things white!)
See the full tutorial on how to make this HERE.
I’ll be back in the morning with a project I created with these pretty dishes!
UPDATE: Boom! See what I did with them HERE now!
