classic blue & white.

I’ve got another toolbox to share with you guys today.

Once again I neglected to get a good ‘before’ photo of it, but it’s the one on the very bottom of the photo above.

I followed my usual steps to prep it for paint.  I sanded the peeling paint and rust, I cleaned it with a grease cutting cleaner, and then coated it inside and out with Dixie Belle’s B.O.S.S. to block stains and odors.

I decided to go with a classic blue and white theme on this one, even though that doesn’t feel very seasonal right now.  But I wanted to use up some leftover sections of with prima’s French Ceramics transfer.

I’ve always really loved this one.

I painted the tray, and the inside of the toolbox, first using Dixie Belle’s Bunker Hill Blue.

Next I painted the outside in Dixie Belle’s Drop Cloth.  After that dried, I applied the French Ceramics transfer to the front and sides.

I also added some wording from the I.O.D. Label Ephemera transfer to the lid of the toolbox.

I gave everything a couple of coats of Dixie Belle’s flat clear coat to seal it.

This would be the perfect container for storing all of your stamping supplies, wouldn’t it?

This toolbox is available until someone local snatches it up.   Be sure to check out my ‘available for local sale‘ page for more details.

Thank you to Dixie Belle Paint Co for supplying their products used in this makeover.

  1. I had to laugh when you said this toolbox will hold ALL of your stamp supplies. I have a whole room that must hold my stamp supplies! Very nice tool box, though. Love the blue and white.


    1. Another gorgeous creation! Love the inside color – perfect with the floral. I use my toolbox for my hot glue guns and glue sticks…perfect size.


  2. I just love ALL of your toolbox makeovers! I have a toolbox that I painted white and then put stripes on the side with Dixie Belle’s Sea Glass. Now I’m stumped and waiting for further inspiration. I’m going to go back and review your toolbox creations to give me some inspiration. Thank you too for sharing storage ideas, as that has been a challenge for me too.


    1. You should be able to see all (or at least most) of my toolbox makeovers by selecting the ‘toolboxes’ category under ‘sorted.’ on the right hand side of the page (if you’re viewing this on a computer screen). Hope you get some great ideas for your own toolbox!


  3. Hi Linda!! I love this. I have this transfer but I definitely need to find some tool boxes. Thank you for being a huge inspiration to me.
