Welcome to another 12 months of DIY project! Each month, I join a great group of Canadian bloggers to bring you some fabulous DIY projects, all using the same material. Last month we all used mod podge and I made my “Home” wooden sign – one of my favourite projects! This month we are all using spray paint to give new life to old objects, and I’m SO excited to share this simple pencil holder with you!
I was browsing through the thrift store this week, as I often do… lol. And I came across this old bath caddy. I see these in thrift stores ALL the time, but this time I had a great idea for it!
1×6 wood board (just enough to cover the bottom)
Black spray paint
Yep! Only one tool needed for this project!
Measure the bottom of your bath caddy and use your saw to cut a piece of wood that will fit inside. You want it to slide right between the bars and sit on the bottom. My spaces in the bath caddy were big enough for a 1×6″ board, but if yours isn’t, you can always use plywood or hardboard too.
Slide your board in to make sure it fits.
I used black gloss from Rustoleum to paint my piece black.
I also used Kona by Varathane to stain my wood board. As soon as they were both dry, I slid the board back inside, and I was done!
I LOVE this piece! It was so simple, and looks phenomenal! Soon I’ll be working on my rustic industrial Family Command Center, and this is going to fit in perfectly!
(Stay tuned for it!)
