I love old tool boxes. In fact, I love anything with a tool box shape and have been picking them up whenever I see them at garage sales or thrift stores. So I was delighted to find this one at Goodwill...and it was color tagged to be half off too! I paid a whopping $1.99 for it.
Guess folks couldn't see past the poor bunnies.
It didn't take long to change it from bunny to country.
I'm doing a 21 day "farmhouse style decor" challenge (more about that Tuesday) and in it we learned to make our own chalk paint. I used a 'mistint' from Lowes to make my paint. I like the color.
Then to give it some personality I wrapped some jute rope around the handle. For the front I used an antique hinge I picked up in Winona, MN at the ReStore.
I think it came out really cute. Now I just need to figure out where I'm going to use it. I have several ideas to work through.
How would you use it?
