Floral Beer & Condiment Caddy

Little wooden caddies are so very handy, let me show you how I totally revamped one from a bar.

I picked this beer sponsored condiment caddy up at a local thrift store, so much potential to restyle it.


It was scrubbed up well and dried ready to restyle.


After much thought I chose  Dixie Belle Paint in palmetto for the base coat inside and out.

After the palmetto coat dried it was time for Dixie Belle Paint color called the gulf.

This soft greeny blue blended perfectly with the dark green using my Fine Mist Spray Bottle and the Dixie Belle's oval brush in the center of all sides.

I love these two colors blended, you?

To create the pretty floral designs I chose vintage floral  Dixie Belle transfer.

Cutting them apart makes it easier to come up with a layout for them around your project.

Once you find the spot, remove the backing and rub in place with the provided stick. This particular transfer along with the cherry blossom transfer were from another manufacturer. The transfer has a sticky halo that had a learning curve but prior to solving it I found the lack of slick stick again caused issues with the transfers that pulled the paint off as well. UGH!

The transfer has a sticky halo that had a learning curve but prior to solving it I found the lack of slick stick again caused issues with the transfers that pulled the paint off as well. UGH!

And the solution for this transfer's sticky halo is to burnish it with a fine grit sanding pad. This also smooths the paint as well. The sanding paper was used to distress the edges to give a rustic farmhouse feel.

Now for the sealing step; I chose clear  Dixie Belle's best dang wax with brown  Dixie Belle's best dang wax around the edges again to add to that rustic feel. I apply the clear with my dedicated wax  Dixie Belle best dang brush  and the dark with a dedicated  Dixie Belle premium chip brush.

All sides have pretty flowers and the interior is the dark green.

Great for showing off flowers in a jar
