What I did on my snow day....well part of it anyway.

Remember this tool caddy from my last post? It needed a makeover but I wasn't sure where I was going to use her.....

Here she is now, on top of my washing machine, holding cleaning supplies and a little lavender.

This is one of the ends that I decided to put some upholstery webbing on with a french label.

Close-up of the label....

Had to use my "vintage" stamp somewhere on this!

Old fabric trim with lace softens the handle and makes it easier to carry....

My really old sprinkle bottle for ironing.....notice the wallpaper? There's a different paper on the front and the back......

Detail on the other end....

Lavender tucked in......

I lined the bottom of the cubbies with old wallpaper....
So there's my cleaning caddy...I look forward to adding more supplies to her.
Tomorrow is probably going to be another snow day here...yippee!

The toolbox looks so pretty after your makeover Gail. What a great idea. Love the detail with the french label and the fabric and lace around the handle.

I have so much fun looking at what people think of to make something special. You did a wonderful job with the toolbox. I like how you thing "outside of the box" when you create. I will have to try that a little more.

Magnificent!! I love that old label and the faded wallpaper!

Hope you enjoy that tomato basil soup, too. ;)
