As promised a brand new project for the month of August! My friend Carol over at Scrapadabadoo.com asked me if I would come up with a remote control caddy for her coffee table! She asked that I do it with the FANTASTIC line of papers from Fabscraps that is available at Scrapadabadoo.com.
Fabscraps has so many cool papers from a variety of their collections and they work so well together. For me, Fabscraps hit this paper out of the ball park! It's totally amazing how this actually looks like old wall paper or old finishes that have aged so beautifully. I so wanted to distress it with ink, but the light and shabby "chicness" of it made me run for paint and a paint brush. I painted the project a darker color first, then distress it with warm white paint once the papers had been adhered.
Carol's Caddy has a place to hold everything! It can hold a ton of remotes, which can be placed into the ascending slots. A place on the right to hold TV Guides, newspapers or even crossword puzzles to keep our minds fresh....and YOUNG!!!! A convenient little lidded compartment hides pens. cell phones, or just junk that you need to scramble away before company comes. A fun and easy project to create that believe it or not could be made in a few hours....Hope you like it....
This piece would also be a GREAT organization desk system. It really has a lot of possibilities! Grab some chipboard, some paper and in a few hours you could do this cool project!
If you would like the the tutorial for this project, it will be in my Etsy store tonight.... :)
As always, Thank you so much for your time and support!
Have an Awesome Day!
The Gentleman Crafter
