Craft Storage From A Vintage Tool Box

Give a vintage tool box a new life and yourself awesome portable storage for craft events. I found this old tool box at a thrift shop and with a fresh coat of paint gave it a new life. The gold polka dots are cut from vinyl so if I tire of the color of pattern they are removable.
I cut gold vinyl dots and my name using my Silhouette Cameo.
Can you believe the box was only 2.99! There were too many scratches and rust to leave as is.
I found these plastic drawer dividers at the dollar store that fit perfectly inside.
The top shelf holds little stuff and the bottom holds larger
Can you believe how well the containers fit in the box. Make the perfect craft supply organization

    What's not to love about polka dots? Your repurposed toolbox is adorable and you did such an excellent job of taking it from old to FABULOUS!

    Thank you for the inspiration!
