Wet Distress Paint Build – Build a Scrap Caddie
I love building useful things from a bunch of junk. I have made many of these flower box/caddies from all kinds of scrap wood. In this Caddie, I made it with old pieces of Moulding and left over reclaimed wood.
It’s a two for today! I show you how to make a cute Caddie from Scrap wood and Moulding and in my video, show you how to use CeCe Caldwell’s Paints to layer and wet distress.
You could make it this morning and have it ready for a party tonight!
Start with 3 pieces of scrap wood. I used pine planks I had on hand from another project. I cut them each at 10.5″. Big enough to hold three Mason Jars.
Cut 2 pieces of Moulding that is at least 6 inches. TIP: Moulding stores often throw out end pieces. Ask around for the throw outs. My local Moulding shop gave me a HUGE pile last time I asked.
Glue the 3 pieces of pine planks together. 2 sides, 1 bottom. Secure with finishing nails. Now attach the trim pieces to the end. If you have a cordless nail gun, this project goes very fast!
Sand the rough edges (you might want to do this BEFORE you put it together, I tend to do things the hard way). Time to paint! I used CeCe Caldwell’s 100% Natural Chalk plus clay Based paints. You can layer these paints beautifully, and use a wet rag to distress the paint, no sand paper! Watch my video to check out how easy wet distressing can be.
Now you know how to wet distress paint – build a Scrap Caddie!
Don’t throw out those wood scraps anymore! They can be useful repurposed into new objects. Eventually you could have enough to give to every one of your friends too……
