Updated Thrift Store Toolbox

I am so thrilled with my little wooden tool box re-do!! I picked it up last year at our local thrift store for just $2 !!! Of course, the blue paint and bunnies were showing their 80's age, so I gave it new life with several coats of spray paint and a spray painted chalkboard.

What a change!

And best of all, I can use it for any holiday by simply changing out the message.  It will be beautiful at Christmas, but I can also use it for all the other holidays.

It looks really nice on our slate hearth -

Now I just have to work on my chalkboard lettering skills!

  1. Love this idea especially the use of chalkboard paint. I have been on the hunt for a tool box like this for some time to no avail....
    $2.00 is a great price too!!

    Hugs,
