Shabby Caddy

Good afternoon everyone, hope you're enjoying the day?

I took a break from my dining room table and chairs, and finished a little caddy I found while thrifting the other day. 
Ain't she ugly.. eh hem.. pretty?!

Well, now look at her!

I cut a circle of toile from a leftover scrap I had and glued it in...
Soooo much better than whatever that was before!

And, of course, shabbied her up a bit...

What do ya think?

I also wanted to share a couple of pictures I took of a pillow I made yesterday using a graphic from The Graphics Fairy. I spray glued a peice of drop cloth to another peice of cardstock, and ran the image through my printer.  I think it turned out great!

Notice the large roses on the table?

I found those at Michaels. Such a pretty shade of blushed pink. Michaels had the roses and some hydrangeas in the same color, I bought 3 roses and 3 hydrangea stems. Soo gorgeous!!

Linking up at:


  1. LOVING that pillow and your caddy! What a transformation! I will have to try printing like that on my printer. I have used muslin, but not drop cloth. Happy WW!

  2. Thanks Sandi and Kristin :)

    With the dropcloth it unravels pretty easy, so after spray gluing it to the cardstock I cut the whole thing just a bit smaller so it didn't unravel. Worked like a charm!

  3. What nice projects. I really like the pillow, but haven't tried one yet.

  4. Great job. Quite the tranformation. Would not think that was the same caddy. I also did a pillow for my daughter using the same image from graphic fairy. If you get a chance check it out.

  5. hi tynk, thanks for visiting me @ cottageromance.blogspot.com! and for your sweet comment! i love the way that caddy turned out and good idea using the scrap to cover the ugly whatever it is!

  14. Thankyou everyone :) Sooo many comments on this one.. guess what I'm on the lookout for to re-do again! hehe!

    I had alot of fun chaning the entire look of this sweet little caddy. A little difficult to get my brush in the cubbys.. but, worth the effort in the end.

  15. Great post. I love your creativity. I'm your newest follower.

  16. Nice to meet you Moogie! Thanks for stopping by :)


  17. This turned out great! Visiting from Transformation Thursday.

  18. thanks for following and the lovely comments. Ok I never thought about running material through my printer. I gotta try that. sounds so simple. Love the caddy, you did a marvelous job of camouflaging the ugliness. Isn't it great to have creative vision. Sooo many talented people in blog land. You are one of them.
    Au revoir
    p.s. I will be following you!!:)

  19. Hi Tynk. Love your finished tote box. I have one similar that was shabby when it was new and I love using it for my craft supplies. The toile paper was brilliant. I live in Jacksonville, FL myself, just a couple of hours from you.

    Have a great weekend. Hugs...Tracy :)

    P.S. I have a giveaway ending tomorrow. I hope you'll stop by and enter.

  20. Renee, Vicki and Amber, thanks so much for stopping by! Nice to meet you!!

    Caroline, it really is that easy ;) Just make sure you get all the frayed ends off before running it through your printer.

    Tracy, do you ever make it up to the St. Augustine Flea Market? Would love to know how "good" it is. The last couple I went to, in Waldo and Webster, stunk sooo bad. All plastic junk being sold out of the back of vans.. grrr..

    Making a stop over at your blog! Thanks!

  21. Cute pillow and I love the little caddy!
