Frenchy Caddy

Can you believe I'm still working on pieces that I picked up at AmVets a week ago?!  This is the wood caddy that I got there that originally came from Michael's.  It was pink and had the word spring on both sides.  Here it is now:
I gave it a couple of coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Louis Blue.  I popped over to The Graphics Fairy to pick some French text I could quickly add to the front of it.

Using graphite paper, I carefully traced it on.  Then I sanded it down a bit so it looked a bit aged.
 
It's holding some faux cotton stalks I got from Decor Steals last week.  I haven't found a place for her yet and I'm still figuring out what I'm going to display inside.

I really love your tote! The color is great, and of course I am in love with that Parisian graphic. Never tried the graphite method, sounds like it's easy??
