the bloom where you are planted toolbox.

I have another painted toolbox to share with you today.

Unfortunately I totally neglected to get a good ‘before’ photo of this one.

It’s actually the one at the back beneath the dark green one.  You can just see a bit of it there, and you can sort of see that someone half spray painted it brown.

Well, I painted over the outside in Dixie Belle’s Drop Cloth and I painted the inside in their Mint Julep.  Then I pulled out some scraps from the Cosmic Roses transfer from re.design with prima.  I’ve been using bits and pieces of this transfer on various things.  You last saw it on the Laundry Co sign …

I only had a few scraps left, but I was still able to trim them up and place them on both the outside of this toolbox …

plus on the inner tray …

This toolbox has a sort of bump out that holds the tray in place about half way down, and I was easily able to wrap the transfer around that.

I stenciled the top, and inside the tray using Dixie Belle’s Golden Gem Mousse.

I think the colors on this one are so pretty.

Normally this is the part where I mention that this toolbox is for sale locally, but this one has already gone home with its new owner.

I have a few more toolboxes coming up in the line up, plus a few other small projects I’ve been working on.  So be sure to check back next week!

As always, thanks to Dixie Belle Paint Co for providing the paint used for this project and to re.design with prima for supplying the Cosmic Roses transfer.

    1. I have a few of those floral transfers in my stash 😉 It’s fun to use them on smaller projects like these. I suspect you’ll see a few more of them down the road.

    1. I used to discard those trays because they really are putzy to paint. Plus I worry that pulling them in and out will just scratch up the inside of the toolbox. But I know some people want the trays, so … now I’ll keep them if I have them 🙂
