Adventures in Repurposing

Old metal objects are cool and can be repurposed pretty easily. I found this box on the side of the road in a trash pile.

I loved the original color on this vintage metal tool box and I REALLY love the shape, but it was totally rusted!

Take a look:


Poor little dear.


I couldn’t find any color that I liked as much as the original blue, so I sprayed it with two coats of textured silver paint!

Now I use this lovely little box for tools of a different sort: nail supplies. All of my polishes, nail tools and files fit neatly in this little box and I keep it displayed in my bedroom stylishly!

Don’t let a little rust dissuade you from trying! Think outside the box and use uncommon items for storage.
