Refinishing a craft store tool box

I had this unfinished tool box for a long time. I've seen so many beautiful re purposed vintage tool boxes around that I became inspired to do something with mine. I wanted a weathered look, so I dry brushed it with several layers of gray and white paint to create a vintage look and used it to store my napkins and extra flatware.

    I know this is an old post, but I just happened across it! I love the tool box, but I have to know about your back-splash. Is it Tin, painted, where did you get it? Thanks for your time.
