Thrifted Wooden Bottle Caddy Upcycled As Easter/Spring Decor


I found this wooden bottle caddy at Goodwill over Christmastime. 

I knew I would never use it as a stadium style bottle carrier, so it needed a makeover.

When I wiped the caddy down with a rag and hot soapy water, some of the redwood stain wiped off on my rag.

I decided I should prime the tote with Dixie Belle Boss.   Boss is a stain and odor blocking product.  I use it mainly to prevent wood stain or tannins from bleeding  through porous paints like chalk paint.

After two coats of Boss, and drying overnight, I brushed on a couple coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Colonel Mustard.  

I distressed the edges with 220 grit sandpaper.

I pulled out these sheets of Redesign by Prima - Classic Vintage Labels purchased on Etsy.  

I chose these two labels for the ends of my caddy.

I pulled the paper backing off the transfers, centered them on the ends of the caddy, and rubbed the transfer with the enclosed rectangular stick.  When they were all stuck down, I removed the clear plastic cover sheet.

I sealed the paint and transfers with Dixie Belle Big Mama's Butta.

I poured a bag of brown shredded paper from Dollar Tree into the caddy bottom.

I found this bag of Easter eggs at a Hobby Lobby store in Bemidji, Minnesota.  Easter decor is now 40% off at Hobby Lobby.

I like this upcycled bottle caddy as an Easter egg basket.  Especially for these farmhouse style eggs.

My little bunny is cast iron.  I have had him for several years.

Easter decor doesn't have to be pastel!
