Love ASCP Primer Red

ASCP Primer Red is my new favorite color. Looks like old barn red after it is waxed. Added some vintage dollies to the small tote.
Thrifted two home made small tote/tool boxes last week. Unpainted. Also found an old wooden mug holder in plain brown. 
Painted everything with 2 coasts ASCP Primer Red. Dried them in the sunshine (yes, there was some sunshine). I feel so cheerful when it is sunny and I get so much more work finished.
First coat with a bit of vintage reader added (Friends All About reader with red barn).
With 2 coats ASCP, waxed but not yet polished.
Cup holder stand waxed.
Polished Cup Holder with jewelry plus vintage planter and crocheted doily (evening photo).

Perhaps the 2nd tote will be used for gardening tools. This week DGS and I have been pruning, sometimes a bit too enthusiastically, but with great heart.
Handy totes for small pots of plants like primula and pansies. Handy for hand tool storage. Useful as a table centre with flowers.
Before and after plus a vintage rooster.

Thanks for visiting.
Will be back again on Monday


  1. What a difference a little paint and work can do. Well done.

  2. I can see why you like that red - it is beautiful all waxed and buffed. Really pretty projects.


  3. What a satisfying project! The red is gorgeous. I'm just wondering if the wax is tinted since it seems to change the color of the red [nicely, I might add]?

  4. Love that color red! Great job, makes me want to grab a paintbrush. Thanks for sharing at TTF!


  5. LOVE these in red!! I have red in my Kitchen and am always drawn to anything red. Lucky you finding these unfinished to boot!! I have been looking and can not find one ......

    Great post!! Happy Easter!!


  6. I adore primer red, and wood tool caddies, they look great in red. Wonderful finds and vintage pieces to match.....swoon!

  7. Love the color. Did you use the dark wax?

  8. I love that color, it's beautiful and would match my kitchen! I would LOVE for you to share it at our craft and recipe party!

    Have a great day!

  9. Oh wow, Joy, red is my favorite color anyway, but that red is a really gorgeous red! I love what you did with your projects and vignettes. Thank you so much for sharing this at this week's History and Home Link Party on We Call It Junkin - take care! -Dawn

  10. They look so gosh darned cute! The red is just lush :)

  11. They turned out just charming! Thanks for sharing at Revisionary Life Thrifty Life Thursday!
