So I have had this old wooden toolbox in my possession for quite a while. In fact, I can remember my sister and I fighting over it when we were kids. I guess I must have won that fight because somehow I ended up with it.
Ive been using it to store my acrylic paints in but I thought it was time to give it a makeover, and after glimpsing at the photo below Im sure you can tell why!
I used Tattered Angels' Decor and DIY paint in Crystal white to cover that hideous red. I used two coats, just to make sure it was completely covered. When the toolbox was painted and completely dried, I wrapped the handle in some twine.
Finally, to finish it off, I took some 7 Gypsies lace and tied it around the body of the toolbox with some more twine. It looks amazing on my dining room table. I look forward to filling it with different things for the seasons!
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
Here's a few products I used:
