I kept my promise and reworked the old toolbox I bought at Brimfield into a glamorous jewelry armoire last week. I can’t wait to share the “after” pictures, but first, let’s revisit the “before” picture of the rusty old tool box (this picture doesn’t do it justice, it was pretty banged up and dirty):
After hours of sanding down rust with steel wool (lots of help from a loving boyfriend) and several coats of spray paint later, I have to say, I’m a bit obsessed with how it turned out:
I’m mostly excited because I can’t believe how organized all of my accessories are now! There’s a little surprise on the inside, hot pink felt lining to keep my necklaces from rattling around in the metal drawers:
And to corral all of the teeny-tiny bits of baubles I spray painted an egg crate to match the metal.
It was quite the facelift — from holding to wrenches to cocktail rings!
Looks awesome! I love the felt.
Gorgeous! I love the egg crate detail.
AMAZING wow. I want that exact piece!!!
AMAZING transformation, I would die for all that storage!
So cute!! what a great idea!
This is amazing! Thanks for sharing a great idea!
beautiful, great transformation
Love it! Now Griffin can’t rattle anything in the middle of the night!
Now you have an excuse to buy more jewels!
I’m obsessed! You did such a great job.
This looks so amazing! Great idea to use the felt and the egg crate. You should submit this to design sponge before and after. Great job!
WOW….sooo beautiful! :)))))))))))
Just divine! You have a good eye for something that I probably would have passed by.
Wow…I love this. Genius.
Amazing work. Very impressive and very chic!
Hello! I love this color and would like to use on my own armoire. Do you remember the type of spray paint and color? Thanks much!
