Everyone on the planet knows I love to work with tool caddies.
Today I have triplets for you.
Quite a handsome group.
The black one started life as plain old wood.
Homemade, but not homely.
Unique, in fact.
Love that tall divider and the four compartments inside.
I showed you the gray one before - more about the mirror next week.
A dependable fellow divided into two compartments with a handle inside so he is stackable.
A good trait in a tool caddy.
I thought I showed you the blue one, but, oops, I did not.
So here it is already sanded down.
Love the shape of this one.
The gray one was sanded very heavily.
At this point I must admit to deleting the whole process of painting the wood one with Americana Chalky Paint in carbon which I bought with my own dollars, but you have seen painting before.
I also sanded the black slightly and coated with a spray satin varnish.
Just use your imagination.
Now back to the photos I did take.
I wiped the blue and the gray tool caddies with Mission Oak stain.
See the before and after of the bright blue toned down to perfection.
I spread the stain with a foam brush and wiped it off with a heavy duty paper towel.
The tool caddy triplets are over at Riverfront Antique Mall.
