Old Wood Toolbox (Simplify)


This is an old vintage, wooden toolbox that I've painted in a more prim look. It came to me in a faded whiteish' colored wood, totally covered in grease spots and the inside was terrible. I didn't even think to take a before pic because as soon as I got it home, I started cleaning and painting it.

I painted it with a brush, with a flat black. Then I stenciled on the "Simplify" saying and the star. Next, I roughed it up around all the edges & handle with some medium grade sand paper.

Then I sealed it with a light shade of varnish/stain combo. Let it dry and here it is. It's for sale in my Peddlers Mall booth for $24.99.
Update: Sold


I displayed magazines in this at my booth. It would be great for many other uses as well though.

PRIMITIVE BARNWOOD TOOL BOX

I drew out a toolbox design and had my husband cut it out for me.
Just the two ends that are kinda shaped like a front of a house, two sides, just rectangles, and then the flat bottom.

The handle was a little tricky to get it in there.
We used a tobacco stick, just cut it to size, and had to drill two holes in the ends to hold it.

After he put it together, I gave it a little detailing along the edges with black paint, to make it a lil more rustic.

Then I stenciled on the words and stars with some basic craft paint from WalMart. 
The stencils can be found on eBay just by searching for "primitive stencils."

I just love it.

If you like the Old Crow Stool behind it, you can see that post here.

PRICE: $19.99 SOLD in my Booth #555.
Thank You!
