If something isn’t painted, I tend to paint it. I just can’t help myself. I love the transformative power of paint. Recently my friend Cathy gave me a wooden tool caddy in a dark stained wood. I was in the middle of painting a dresser with Miss Mustard Seed’s “Luckett’s Green” and I had a little left over. I figured it was just enough for the toolbox.
I wish I had thought to take a ‘before’ picture. I’m sure I’ll get better at that as I go. Right? Right.
So, a couple of coats of Luckett’s Green, then some sanding, followed by a quick rub-down with Hemp Oil and voila! I also added a fab metal number plate that just happened to match perfectly. I’ll display this for the holiday season with one of my fav holiday decorating books and some of my vintage ornaments, but it will likely eventually end up at my next occasional sale.
