Quatrefoil Sewing Caddy

Last summer I went to an estate sale where I found a cool, old sewing caddy. It started out looking like this...

After bargaining for the price, I cleaned it up and painted it heirloom white. I liked it and thought it looked cute, but it still needed something.

I remembered seeing a printable stencil over at Tatertots and Jello, and I knew what I needed to do.

I stenciled the sides of the sewing caddy to match my craft room!

I still need to do a second coat and erase my stencil tracing lines, but I like the way it's going! Do you think I should stencil it all over or just leave it on the ends? I am conflicted. Thanks again to Jen at Tatertots and Jello for her (awesome) quatrefoil obsession.


I will be linking to these parties this week.
