Toolbox revamped

Marlene KindredJuly 1, 2011

This toolbox belonged to my Dad, but it was battleship gray, so I decided to dress it up a little and, of course, junk it up a little. I couldn't bring myself to paint the handle since he had worn the paint off with his own hands carrying it around.

Looks great! I'm sure it makes you smile when you walk by (like my watering can on top of my Tipsy Buckets) TFS! Jeanne S.

Marlene..I love your tool box. I have one of the flowers that you attached to the front. It is part of a set of three. I also have a set of three butterflies. (Home Interiors) You have inspired me to see what I can do with mine. Thank you!

I love the look & the handle is a wonderful memory of your dad. The stars & flower really add some bling & lovely addition to your deck. Jan
