and took it apart to decide which colors would go where.
I decided to paint the inside all black to keep things simple. The center and bottom pieces were painted black on both sides, and the outside pieces were painted black on one side only. The other sides were painted in the rainbow colors. I drew a center line on each outside piece and colored each half one color – keeping the warm colors together and the cools ones on opposite sides of the caddy.
Painting one side of each outside piece black sounded like a good idea – but I am a very messy painter! I painted the black sides first and ended up with little spots of black on the other side. It took three generous coats of the other paint colors to cover them. Foam brushes worked well.
I used a permanent black marker to cover all the edges black because the colorful paints strayed there in places and I wanted the consistency of all black edges.
