So I wanted to give them a nice home.
I found this at a garage sale for $5
I cleaned it up with 409 and a wire brush, then took the door off, the drawers out and removed the hardware.
I painted the body, which was rusted in many places, with grey rustoleum spray paint. The door and drawers got a couple coats of Sea Mist (seafoam?) green rustoleum. The hardware got a fresh layer of silver spray paint.
And now she's GORGEOUS!
And all mine :)
I love that she is 2 pieces! So handy!
I have lots more tools to put in - just haven't had a chance to put them all in yet.
Bonus - she fits in the little end gap under the counter in my new laundry room!
Speaking of tool boxes...
I found this at a thrift store for $3
(another example of some woman going nuts with the craft paint and stencils!)
Sanded it down and painted it a dark reddish orange.
It was awful.
So I went back to grey!
Later, I stenciled on "Tools" with Heirloom White. So cute!
This one's not being used for tools - I'm keeping my most current sewing project inside, instead. Right now it's full of tutu materials :)
