New Lil' Book Caddy

Happy Wednesday!  It's almost Halloween and we will have two owls and a power ranger parading around the neighborhood:)  I hope it's a nice evening for my babies to be out and about!  I hope you are well:)  My family of five is doing is in full swing along with some swimming lessons.  My days seem to fly by!!  We have officially begun building our new house and we couldn't be more excited!  We hope to be in there this winter....cannot wait!!

I found this little wooden caddy awhile back and painted it yellow.   I didn't like the results and decided to paint it a mint color.  I absolutely love this color right now and happened to score this quart for a dollar at Home Depot awhile back.  I actually would like to paint my daughter's room this color and accent her room with pink and yellow hues.

Here it is before I changed the color...

I painted it over with a very appealing minty color and then antiqued it the edges with black paint.  I added "books" to the side of the caddy.  I think it's a great place to store some books don't you?!

Have a great day!
