I am so excited to be blog-swapping with Beckie today!

I am even more excited to be seeing her at Blissdom next week!!!

Beckie is the talented woman behind two amazing blogs!

If you haven’t met her yet, you are in for a treat!

Here she is….

Hello Beneath My Heart readers!  I am Beckie from Infarrantly Creative and Knock Off Decor, my newly launched site.  I am excited to pop over to Traci’s house to say hi to ya’ll (I think that is how Traci says it, right?)
I am a lover of all things creative.  My absolute favorite projects are my Roadkill Rescue projects where I find curbside castaways and turn them into usable, and beautiful decor for my home.  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.
woodtoolcaddyI liked the shape and knew it was just the perfect size for me to store all of my bath products in.  I LOVE taking bubble baths and perusing the latest Pottery Born 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.IMG_2077 It looked much better but it still needed more. After I distressed it a bit, I mixed some glaze with some Deco Art 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 shooting for.metallicfinish
In honor of Traci’s Silhouette giveaway I decided to use my Silhouette and add some premium 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.bathcaddy

Then I added all the the things that make a bath luxurious.bathcaddy2bathcaddy3 Perfection!
I would love for you to come over for a visit.  I promise you will have fun!  Thanks for having me Traci.  Bye ya’ll.

  5. What a nifty idea. These are perfect for guest rooms and giving gifts. I can see giving them to shut ins, new mommies, crafters etc. I see these all the time in thrift stores. So glad to see them being repurposed.~Ames

  7. I saw your guest post over at Infarrantly Creative. I loved your post over at Infarrantly Creative. We are about to tackle a similar project in our mud room. I am reading some of your past posts. I am your latest follower now. I’d love if you would come check out my blog at http://www.diybydesign.blogspot.com. I’ve only been doing this for 3 1/2 months but it has been life changing already. I’d love if you would follow me back. Thanks.

  8. Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?

Speak Your Mind
