It is no secret that DecoArt Chalky Finish paint is one my my favorite craft supplies. I recently completed this painted wood caddy and thought I would share with y’all today. I am blessed to be on the DecoArt design team and am compensated for posts such as these however all projects and opinions are my own. I would definitely love the chalky finish paint regardless.
Items needed to paint a surface like this wood caddy:
- Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint is available in Home Depot, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, A.C. Moore and other stores. Visit the DecoArt Chalky Finish website for more chalk paint ideas and inspiration. (I used the paint in everlasting for the project below.)
- Surface to paint (I am using a vintage wood tool box that is already stained and finished)
- Pouncer stencil brush
- Americana Mixed Media Stencil in Busy Bee
- Removable stencil adhesive
Spray the back of your stencil with removable stencil adhesive (do this OUTSIDE!). Lightly tack to your surface and pounce with brush and Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint.
Readjust stencil to next area to be covered. In my case, I covered all of the sides but left the ends and inside unpainted. Allow the paint to dry completely before using the caddy. You can wax with Americana Decor Creme Wax to get a glossier sheen and protect your work.
I am using this one as a storage caddy in our mudroom. It will sit next to the sink and store soap, sponges, etc. Stay tuned as I will have more of the mud room over the next month and a reveal soon! I love the wood showing through the stenciled surface. It really was just what this room needed.
One more sneak peek into the direction I am headed in the mud room is below. That HUGE jar has a metal handle and I am using it as a towel holder. Awesome right? Y’all are going to love it!
We will be enjoying our new to us painted wood caddy and the organization that it provides in the mud room. Y’all be sure to consider trying Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint on any project big or small that you have coming up. You won’t regret it!

Additional Home Organization Help
Do images on Pinterest stress you out because they seem more like a fairy tale than something you can actually achieve?
Don’t fall into that pretty and perfect trap. You can get clutter-free and organized without living a fairy tale life.
No one knows this better than my friend Hilary! She has an entire course for sale that is dedicated to real-life organization ideas. I love that her approach works for any family with any budget.
My favorite part of this course is that Hilary strives to make your home easier to clean-up, so that it takes only minutes, instead of hours. Who couldn’t use more time and less cleaning?
Plus the system can make your house look fairly put together most times of the day. See for yourself with this course!
