Rusty Shower Caddy Re-do {Salvaged Sunday}

by GettingFreedom on February 11, 2012


I’m SO excited to have opened up Salvaged Sunday as a linky!  I hope y’all don’t leave me lonely.  I want to see some other projects! :)

This week I {finally} gave my rusty ol’ shower caddy a new life.  We purchased this metal shower caddy about 5 years ago for $20.  I remember fighting with my frugal nature in coughing up that much for a stinking shower caddy, but I caved.  It was metal afterall, and should last forever.  Right?


A few years later I noticed it started to appear rusty in spots.  I would clean it up and it would come right back.

Then I forgot about it since it’s in our laundry room shower {which used to be our only shower until Project MAD} and I’m never in there anymore.  But, over the last couple of weeks we’ve been doing some final details in there–and I was quickly reminded of how icky it was!

I couldn’t leave it be this time! I took it outside, wiped it off and took some steel wool and sanded off all of the rust I could.

And gave it a fresh new coat of my beloved oil rubbed bronze spray paint.


I’m not sure which one I’m getting more life out of–my spray paint or my shower caddy! ;)


Now it’s your turn!  What so-called trash have you given a new life?
