This Toolbox Was Calling My Name


I was driving along on my way from point a to point b and out of the corner of my eye I saw a little toolbox sitting on the side of the road, at the end of someone's driveway. It was sitting there with a "Free" sign leaning against it. I've been wanting a metal toolbox for some time, this was perfect!

It seriously wasn't my style, you know - tetanus was crawling all over this toolbox. So, naturally I needed to fix that - STAT!
I grabbed some sand paper, strapped on my PPE and got to work! I painted the toolbox insert first -- and I must say, the Rust-Oleum Universal 2 in 1 does one heck of a job!

Next I painted the entire box red. Once the red was dry, I applied painters tape and gave the toolbox some black stripes.

I peeled off the painters tape and stepped back - I think it came out great! A free rusty toolbox turned into something I'll use every day!

I think it looks 100 times better now...
