Let’s make it!
I often see these old tool caddys while thrifting, and I always have an idea of how I want to create with them! They are great for displaying items in your kitchen, a great place to put decorative plates, and you can even use them outdoors.
I’m going to use my custom Lizzy and Erin Designs Lil Hickabilly paint brush to paint this, and y’all, it’s a quick project!
Using my Debi’s Design Diary DIY White Swan paint, I’m just brushing on a coat so it will look a little rustic.
I painted the inside also, then dried it with my heat tool.
Girl, you have got to try out these Iron Orchid Designs (IOD) transfers! They are absolutely amazing, and add so much to just about any surface. They come with a plastic rubbing stick so you can just rub them on and boom! You have a beautiful project!
I just trimmed some from the big sheet and began applying my design. Notice the gridlines? They sure come in handy when you want to measure where your transfer will go.
Once my design was on, I sanded the edges just a little.
I get so excited over the result of these IOD transfers, y’all!
Here’s my finished project! I’m thinking I’ll use mine for a cutting board display. I added some spools and an old bottle with lavender from my local market to create a vignette.
Let me know in the comments if you have tried IOD transfers. They sure take my projects up a bunch of levels!
Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate each of you.
