Found vintage toolbox…

 I can’t tell you how many years this toolbox sat in our garage until I looked up one day and actually noticed it.
it was from my husband’s childhood home. He said it was there as long as he could remember, and he took it with him when he left.
 I cleaned it up and noticed what a great green color it was . The top drawers are zinc and I keep some of my flower seeds, and seam binding in there.

 I thought it looked cute with all of my vintage books on it. I loved the contrast. The books and darker colors are getting me in the mood for fall decorating.

  1. It looks just wonderful, especially with the books! I just love the look of old. I too have sometimes run across things that are “hidden” in my home. That’s the best bargain yet!
    Great blog, I’ll be back!

  2. That is so true! I have tons of stuff stashed away that just takes a fresh look to get the inspiration flowing. I love this little green box and think your arrangement with all your vintage books is just perfect!
    Happy Fall! 🙂

  3. I love it! My husband has noticed that I check out his tools and buckets of junk a little more closely of late. He told me not to be getting any ideas!!

  4. Oh Jen what a fabulous cabinet and I absolutely adore the way you have displayed it with other treasures!!!! I am thrilled to have found your blog and I am your new and very happy follower! Warmest wishes from a 500 year old farmhouse in England – Glenda xxx

  5. Wow, that vintage piece looks great with your books arranged on it. Love the green color too. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet note 🙂

  6. Love your tool box vignette, Jenn!

    We did go to the Randolph St Mkt last night for the Blue Ribbon judging. Missed you! Saw your nametag on the clipboard and was so excited you might be there!
    Did I miss you?

    Got to buy a couple things as they were unloading but did not get a chance to run down there today.

    Hope the weather held out for them!
    See you at Na Da for sure!
