I’ve got another toolbox to share with you guys today.
This time I gave the green one on the top of the pile a makeover.
I initially gave it a paint job using Dixie Belle’s Gravel Road on the inside, and Drop Cloth on the outside. But it felt a bit too plain to me after that, so I painted the ends in Dixie Belle’s French Linen.
After distressing the paint job a bit, I dressed it up with transfers from a variety of sources. The wording is from IOD’s Label Ephemera transfer, the butterfly on the top is from re.design with prima’s Parisian Butterflies.
The sprigs of flowers on the front are from another of re.design with prima’s older retired transfers, and I didn’t even retain the name of it so I apologize for that. However, if you’re looking for something similar, this one from Dixie Belle might work for you.
After painting the inside in the Gravel Road, I added a bit of re.design with prima’s Dark Damask decoupage décor tissue paper to the bottom.
I’ve yet to find another product that works as well for decoupaging. I did give another brand of tissue paper a try and it was a dismal failure (I’ll be sharing that in a future post). This décor tissue paper doesn’t tear and it doesn’t wrinkle, and it’s super easy to apply with some Dixie Belle clear flat coat. I just ordered a couple of their newest designs to have on hand for my next toolboxes!
In the meantime, I hate to tell you, but this one is already sold. One of my regulars purchased it along with the Farmers Market headboard sign that I shared a couple of weeks ago.
But I thought I’d still share it here with all of you.
What do you think?
