Martha Stewart Paint Caddy ~ I have an addiction to paint, especially Martha Stewart Paint. They are available in so many different colors and every one of them is oh so pretty. When I get ready to start to paint a project, I fill my arms with as many paints as I can carry and head over to my table upstairs. Then I have to go back downstairs to grab the rest of my supplies and then head back upstairs again. Yes, it’s good exercise (haha) however, it’s annoying. To solve my little problem, I made myself a Paint Caddy!
Isn’t it cute? I bought the wood caddy at a garage sale last year for $1! I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it until I decided to solve my paint/supplies carrying problem. I used Martha Stewart Paint and a Martha Stewart Stencil from the March supplies I received through the #12MonthsOfMartha.

Step 1: Apply two coats of acrylic paint onto the wood caddy (You might want to give your wood caddy a little sanding to make sure it’s nice and smooth before painting it). Step 2: Choose a stencil you would like to use on your caddy and place it where you would like it to be. Step 3: Once you have chosen the location of your stencil design, use painter’s tape to secure it onto the surface. Step 4 (Optional): If the stencil hangs over the edge of your caddy, place something (like a book or two) underneath the stencil so that it stays flat. Otherwise the stencil will not lay nicely on your surface. Step 5: Put some paint onto wax paper and dab a foam pouncer into the paint (not too much paint). You can remove any access paint onto a paper towel. When you have the right amount of paint on your pouncer, proceed to dab it onto your stencil. (Make sure to apply it everywhere). Step 6: While the paint is still wet, gently remove the stencil from the caddy.
And voilà, you are finished!
How do you carry around your paints?
Do you have a paint caddy or do you just fill your arms with all your supplies like I would?
Hope you are having a FABULOUS day!
