Hi friends! I’m keeping my word.  I am going to show you the little red caddy that could…become white and blue.  🙂

Some of you are screaming “Don’t do it!”  You like it red and I respect that.  I like it red too.  It’s just that I had this vision of a sort of French-inspired caddy.

I started by mixing a little paint.  I had white and kind of  taupe color.  I didn’t want super-bright white.  So I just dribbled in a bit of the darker paint for more of an antique white.

I wound up putting a couple of coats on.  I was very pleased.  You see…I just knew that my artichokes would pop against the white.

In my original idea bubble….I saw a French stripe on the side of my caddy.  I was all set to have my husband (the mathematician) grab his ruler and help me out.  Then I started browsing French-inspired things on Pinterest.  That is when I came up with a little combo of things.  Sort of a French crest type thingy…with a bee.  😉  Can you imagine my delight when I remembered that I had a bee STAMP down in the craft room?  (Cue harps and heavenly light!)  I was so excited!

It just kind of all came together into this cute little thing that was all my own.  I love it when that happens.  From buying time until now…my little caddy felt complete.

So…that is the evolution of my little red caddy that could…. become white and blue.  I hope that you are not too broken hearted…because I am in love with the results!

Let me know whatcha think, and be honest.  I really want to know.  😉

Have a wonderful day, Dirt Roaders!  May you find what you are hunting for.
