I finished another project today and just had to share it with you…...my garden tool carrier as I’m calling it.
I know you have seen these tool carriers, tool boxes or tool totes (whatever you want to call it) all over blogland and used many different ways. I bought one at a Thrift Store a few weeks ago with the intent of using it to house all of my garden tools. I’m always trying to find my garden tools. I tend not to put things back where they belong….just ask my husband. Hopefully, this will help….HA HA!
I’m a bad blogger! I started painting it and realized I forgot to take a picture of what it looked like before. But, imagine if you will, this tool carrier stained natural with pictures of little Amish people on the front and back.
First, I painted it white and then I randomly applied two different shades of green all over the tool carrier.
Once that dried, I went back over it again lightly with more white paint. I then printed off a graphic I found at The Graphics Fairy and applied it to the front of the tool carrier with Outdoor Mod Podge.
When the Mod Podge dried, I sanded it and then applied the Annie Sloan Sloan Dark wax to it.
Now, all I need is for my potting bench to hurry up and get here so that I can place my garden tool carrier on it. I’ve been patiently waiting for it so I can also finish up with my screened-in porch.
As always, thanks for your visit and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother’s Day!
