And I like seeing a bit of the content in the drawers, so I thought I would just decorate the little handles (this was the fun part!).
This didn’t last.
So, instead of waiting until the next day like a rational person, I rushed outside to finish it. But it was all too late. The sun was slipping behind the trees. The mosquitoes were converging. Various bits of plant life were blowing in the breeze and adhering instantly to the toolbox.
Suddenly, my old, familiar, impatient techniques had kicked in. Within 3 minutes, the entire thing was soaked and dripping and making those weird spider-webby things that always seem to happen to me when I spray paint (except in my perfect upside-down paint job this morning, of course).
So. It is what it is. From far away, it looks alright and matches my room. Up close is another story. Let it be known, this is the day I have sworn off spray paint for good. It’s all contact paper and hot glue from now on!
Anyhow, I am linking up my toolbox with all of the other lovely (nicely-painted!) ones that have been on…
Thank you Tara, I never would have had the guts to even make this if it weren’t for your linky party!!!
And I do have a little file to share–just in case anyone else hasn’t made a toolbox yet and would like to decorate the handles. It’s in an editable Powerpoint file, so it just needs little textboxes with your label names on it. These labels are designed to fit this specific box–I got it from Lowe’s. I hope someone can use it–someone who is much better spray painting than I am!!! 🙁
