This month I altered a Dusty Attic Tool Caddy. I'm going to use it to store all my adhesives as its the perfect size for my Helmar glue bottles etc, but as I was altering it I kept thinking of ideas for Christmas presents.... doing it up for a teen girl filled with hair styling products and tools, a desk caddy for a special teacher, a caddy for beside the phone to store pens and paper etc.... so many uses!
I assembled the caddy, using some Helmar tacky craft glue to ensure it all stayed together. It comes flat packed and this is how it looked when I had assembled it and before I got messy with the paints and inks!
then painted it with several coats of paints. I randomly swiped brown ink over it and wiped it back off to give it an aged look, and ran the brown ink around all the edges and handles. I used a floral stamp with rust and green ink to add some colour. I covered the two ends with floral paper, using x-press it double sided tape then dry brushed paint over the top to tone it in with the rest of the caddy and added some brown ink to the edges.
Once everything was dry I decorated the front using gorgeous Manor house flowers- Wishes "Peace" and Wild Rose Mix which I adhered using Helmar 450 glue and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. I also added some Dusty Attic Dusty Rose leaves.
