If you saw my previous post you know I love yard sales. This project was one of my favorites, because there was no building involved. I enjoyed giving this wooden tool box new life. I'm putting it in my yard sale and I hope it finds a happy home on someones porch.
indoor/outdoor spray paint
clay pots & plants
The first step was to sand off the pink nail polish from my wooden tool box.
Next I grabbed some indoor/outdoor spray paint and applied two coats of paint.
While it was drying, I made this cute stencil using my cricut machine. If you don't have a cricut you can find some really cute stencils online or your local craft store.
Now that the paint is dry I applied my stencil. I used painters tape to keep me from getting paint where I didn't want any. I then used a stencil brush to apply some black paint to my letters. To do this I applied light applications of paint by dabbing the brush. After I was done I carefully peeled the stencil off.
I added some finishing touches by distressing the wooden tool box. Once I was done, I applied some poly acrylic. This helps it last longer outdoors.
The wooden tool box was ready for its new purpose as planter. I planted some pretty annuals in clay pots and placed them inside.
