Happy June!  After taking a month off to get caught up on past projects, The Household Organization Diet is back! This month we are going to be working on beautifying our outdoor spaces.  It’s going to be a busy month of projects so I have my fingers crossed that the weather will stay nice!

    I thought I commented on the Turquoise picnic caddy last evening but don’t see my posted message. I found your blog last evening and loved what I saw; lots of inspiration there and information. The picnic caddy could be used for a lot of purposes.. It also looks like it would be easy to make if one can’t find one at a Flee market, yard sale or thrift store. Would I be asking too much if I asked you to draft up a tuitorial on how to build one ..measurements of that size. My Father always had a large one for some of his carpentry tools,, much larger in size then this one. This picnic caddy could display geraniums, petunias or any annual in it..painted any color of your choice. I love the idea of a picnic caddy though.. Of course, Turquoise is one of my favorite colors.

      I didn’t actually make the tool box so, unfortunately, I don’t have a tutorial for you. It was an old box that I had repainted and then repainted again for the picnic caddy! :) Yes, flowers would look great in it too!

      You have the most beautiful outdoor space Krista! I would love to have a view like that! I’m sure you spend many hours out there during the summer. :)

      Our outdoor plans have been on a standstill for the past week as it has been raining!! Rain is still forecasted for the week but hopefully we will get some sun next weekend! Darn Canadian weather! ;)
