Getting Ready for Art Class

Pin It
I'm taking an online art class How to Paint an Owl.  It starts next week and I have been gathering my supplies!  I wanted a cute "caddy" or antique tool box to hold my paints and such.  I looked on Ebay and on Etsy and found a few perfect things, however, they were $30 - $40 - $50.  So I decided to zip into the Goodwill and there it was for a grand total of $3.07 with tax!!  All mine, the perfect caddy!!
Than I bought some Krylon Spray Paint and jazzed it up!

Look how it turned out

Very cute! I am always afraid to use spray paint, thinking it wont go on even and smooth. Your caddy looks great!
