From Pink to White: Tool Box Revamp

July 27, 2011

I picked up this lovely little wooden vintage-inspired tool box (I call it a tool box) from Michael's for 70% off.  Only problem was, it was pink.  And it said "Spring" on the side of it. It was screaming out to me, "Love me, take me home."  So I did.

Since I was going for more of a farmhouse feel, I decided to paint it ~ wait for it~ you guessed it, white.  (I know, not a lot of surprises there.)

I also even distressed it a bit but you can't really tell from the photos.

I do love being able to fill it with jelly jars, cutlery and flowers from the yard.

Well worth the $2.00 plus paint, don't you think?


I'll be linking up here

Hi Kathleen! Oh, your little tool box looks lovely! Guess what? I bought the same one on sale too! I spray painted mine a creamy color and have been wondering what to put in it. Yours is lovely!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

This is so adorable. I love it in white.

How funny is that --- you and Shelia both both the same thing AND painted it too!

I haven't been to Michaels as of late or I may have ended up with one too.

Love a bargain!

Love what you did with it and your dreamy fuzzy love photos too, Kathy.

Love the white and distressed look. Oh yes, well worth the $2.

Miss Kitty said...

TWO DOLLARS!!!???? That is a great deal. You really transformed it with the white's hard not to love white paint. I really like how you have used it in your photos but I bet you will find lots of other uses (functional and/or decorative) to use it for also.
