Wooden Bath Caddy

It is always fun to find something on the curb that you can reuse. It is even more exciting when that something solves a dilemma that drives you crazy. My bath stuff was strewn all over my bathroom floor because I didn’t have a system in place to keep it organized. Now I have a perfect place to store magazines, bubble bath, bath bombs, loofah, and my foot razor thing-a-ba-bob.

Today’s project started out as Roadkill.   Yes, I know you see why someone threw this away.   It is altogether hideous. I am sorry if this is yours and you hand painted it.   Forgive me for my frank analysis. But someone must have hated it also since they threw it away. Just sayin.

I liked the shape and knew it was just the perfect size for my bath products.   I LOVES taking bubble baths and perusing the latest Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs catalog.   However, they end up all over my bathroom floor because I have no place for them.   We needed to fix that.

I lightly sanded the duckies and the rest of the caddy with 120 grit sandpaper and then I primed and painted it.   For the paint, I mixed Glidden Smoky Charcoal with Behr’s Pearlesent Medium.

It looked much better but it still needed more. Remembering all the good truths in Mandie’s e-books I decided to keep going with distressing and glazing.

After I distressed it a bit, I mixed some glaze with some Deco Art Metallic Silver paint and glazed it with that.   Then I added some black acrylic paint to my glaze and glazed it again.   It gave it the perfect depth of color I was going for.

I decided to use my Silhouette and add some premium white vinyl to the side of the caddy using the words, “Restore, Revive, Refresh, Renew, Rejuvenate.”   Those words truly describe how I feel about this little luxury of life.

Then I added all the things to the caddy that make a bath luxurious.
