You probably remember over the summer when I re-did my craft room (HERE is the video with the stuff I picked up at TJ Maxx over the summer and HERE is the full room tour). I had purchased a few of these really cute black desk accessories and I love them. I picked up another one (two) this weekend and did a little organizing. I was surprised TJMaxx and Marshal's still had them since they usually sell out of stuff quick and they don't restock.
Sorry about the poor photo quality, I took all the photos with my cell phone :)
Okay now doesn't that Making Memories caddy just stick out like a sore thumb? Really white!!!
I painted it...Yep I did...
I have the older Making Memories caddy that Michael's use to sell a while back. It has a flat finish so it was all ready to be painted without having to sand.
First I took off all the hardware. Don't ya just love my girly screwdriver :)
Then I used regular acrylic craft paint (FolkArt Licorice to be exact) that you would buy at the craft store and I have to say it came out pretty nice. I'm waiting to see how it holds up and if I'll need to give it a clear coat. I'm hoping I don't have to clear coat it just in case I want to change the color again.
Here is what it looks like after painting and all filled up with my tools.
I'm very happy with how it came out. I was working at my desk today and so far no chips out of the paint.
Have a great rest of the weekend :)
Hugs and happy crafting,
