Rolling Dorm Room Caddy Makeover

I’ve got a fun DIY project for you today: a rolling dorm room caddy makeover! This rolling caddy could be used in the bathroom, in an apartment as pretty storage, or in a dorm room. It all starts with a basic white rolling storage caddy from Home Depot, and ends with a piece of gorgeous decor!

My goal?

To show how you can turn a basic storage piece into fun home decor with stencils and paint!

I saw this simple rolling wood storage caddy online at Home Depot:

What I love about this storage is how slim it is, yet it can hold so much.

This rolling storage cart is perfect for many a small apartment or dorm room, where quite often our storage performs double duty as furniture that’s visible.

If you like white you’re all set, but I wanted to make this over with my favorite chalky finish paints!

Storage for small spaces

Before assembly, I painted each piece separately. It’s so much easier to paint before putting anything together!

Once it was painted with a vibrant base coat, I added some stenciling.

I repeated the single design to make it look like a pattern.

There are so many uses for this type of rolling storage caddy. I’m using mine in my craft room.

Happy crafting!
