Once I got it home I decided it needed a paint job. I like the rustic metal look , but wanted to make this more beachy/coastal. Using some white spray paint and some seaglass aqua spray paint from my garage, I painted the outside white and the inside aqua.
Metal Caddy Makeover
After finding this cute metal caddy on the clearance shelves I knew I had to have it and I knew I'd find a use for it.
I wrote our last name (House) on both sides of the caddy using a paint pen. If you have never used a paint pen, you are missing out. They are great.
What I decided to do with it…
After it got a paint job I decided it’d make a great planter. I headed to Hobby Lobby to find some faux succulents and bought this package of moss too.
Making the faux arrangement…
First, I filled the caddy half way up with sand, using left over sand we had in the garage from when we built our Tiki Bar.
Next, I started placing the succulents into the sand.
Once I was happy with how the succulents looked, I added moss and some shells (I have a million shells in the house) and arranged them until they looked good. This is how it ended up.
And that’s it! This was so easy to make and looks really cute! If you follow me regularly you know I love a good quick and easy project and this couldn’t have been easier.
