A $2 Makeover

The other day I picked up this cute little caddy for $1 at the thrift store.
I had knew right away I wanted to paint it white and use it for my upcoming Easter decor.
So I made my way over to the Dollar Tree and bought some $1 white paint.

Here it is before.

My supplies.

And after.

I distressed it a wee bit.
Amazing what a little bit of paint can do!

A simple and easy makeover.
Kinda cute....for $2.

  1. That is so cute! It is amazing what a coat of white paint can do. I have one I am going to paint this week!

  2. it would be perfect for all kinds of things.
    I'll have to keep my open for a box similar to that .

  3. Very cute! I can't wait to see how you use it!

  4. It is cute. Simple make-overs like this are my favorite. ~Susie~

  5. Cute, cute. I need a little caddy like that-to use in my kitchen. It is amazing what some paint will do!

  6. I buy those tool caddies whenever I find them and use them to hold geraniums in the summertime. That way I can move the colour around.

  7. My word for the year is SIMPLE.
    I like this simple make over.
    ...and YES! a little white paint can do wonders., I'm wondering what you'll do with this little tote?

  8. Great find! Can't wait to see it done up for Easter!

  9. Looks wonderful! I can see this filled with lemonade glasses and fresh strawberries for a summer luncheon. Great find and a great re-purposing!

  10. I love the caddy, wish I could find one like it...maybe I'll cruise a couple of hardware stores, I bet they have them! Big hugs,

  11. My hubby has made me a few of these and they are so much fun to decorate. Can't wait to see what you are going to do with it for Easter.
