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.
