I bought this vintage toolbox a few months ago, it was in rough shape (they usually are) but I knew it could be something wonderful… It took me a month or so to figure out what I wanted to do with it…
I figured it out just in time for Christmas decorating!
I painted the outside of the toolbox Annie Sloan Emperor’s Silk, but I left the inside the original green.
I printed the typography on a laser printer, mirroring the print. It reads “Santa’s Toolbox, if found please return to the North Pole”… super cute!! I placed the printout upside down and used a Blender marker on the paper to transfer the print to the box… rubbing firmly with a spoon to ensure transfer.
I lightly distressed the box, waxed and buffed it.
I filled it with baby poinsettia’s and it sets happily on my dining room table!
I loved how cute this box came out! I didn’t put the typography on the backside of the box in case I wanted to use it throughout the year all I have to do is turn it around…
Hope you like my little Christmas project…
Thanks for stopping by…
Until next time!
