Craft toolbox coastal makeover

I found the perfect box for my craft tools at a garage sale for $2.  The only problem was it looked really old and not so coastal.  Sooooo, out came my trusty spray paint and a little sand paper and now it looks much better.


Before:
I spray painted it with Krylon satin white paint (sorry I didn't get a picture of the process)
I glued seashells to pieces of raffia for the bow.  The box works great to hold my craft tools and supplies that I carry from place to place to work on projects.

Your craft tool tote is so much cuter than mine. I use a cardboard six pack holder.

What a great transformation! For a while there, I was picking up those toolboxes whenever I saw them. They're great for so many things!
Happy White Wednesday!
