Last summer while digging through your dad’s garage for some tools and whatnot for some projects! I found this old wooden toolbox. After making sure my dad didn’t need it or want it, I packed up my supplies and brought the box home, where it sat for a while.
Once the gray was dry and I taped around the box, I painted the untaped parts teal. After it was dry, I pulled off the tape. When I pulled off, really tiny pieces of the gray came off. Instant distressing!
Next came what to do about the handle. It was a little blah, so I decided to paint the handle gold. Since I already had painted the rest of the box, I taped around the handle and used plastic wrap around the box itself and headed outside to spray paint.
Then I came back in, out of the cold, and added a few finishing touches. I painted the nail heads, the nails that were sort of hammered in and the holes where the nails ought to be or were hammered in too far. Since I used chalk paint, I had to wax the whole thing.
Now it’s home for odds and ends, like my collection of silverware, which I’m going to try to make garden markers, my essential oils and dried flowers and herbs, and some jars I have on hand to use to make scrubs.
