Another old tool box turned into my craft box!

I know I just love old tool boxes...they are many uses for them either on top of a cabinet or displayed by itself! This one I found at a junk store for $15.00 I just had to have....I liked the cubbies ontop and I knew it would be a good craft box to put all my dried wreaths and rusty decorations! It is heavy but in really good shape. I just changed the top handle and painted it my favorite color...black!

My first primitive show!

I am really excited about doing my first primitive show at the Rider's Inn on Rt 20 in Painesville, Ohio on March 22nd! I just hope I can restrain myself from buying from the other vendors! Here are some of my projects that I will be selling there.....

Another winter project....I found this old tool box at a barn sale this summer and it was so different I could not resist getting it! I love the drawers! The top folds down into a box and it is pretty heavy! These kind of finds are one of a kind and well made! This is a keeper!
These two chairs were being thrown out by my neighbor...they had good bones just needed a little repair! After gluing the frames I decided to repaint and recover the seats with a more updated look! I love them! So don't throw out things you can redo with a little help! My motto: one man's trash is another man's treasure!

NC Southern towns

While visiting my son's in North Carolina, I happened to stop at two quaint towns near by that has some nice shops, not to mention the beautiful southern homes! I did happen to pick up a old homemade rocking horse, I had to do some tweeking but in the end it came out pretty well. Now to add it to my collection of wooden horses! I did change the horse a little when I came home!
