I have so much fun joining the Thrifty Style Team each month. Today I want to show you how I use a Vintage Toolbox for Party Organization.
Each one of us post our creative, thrifty finds and ideas on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Mark your calendar so you don’t miss out.
My Vintage Toolbox for Party Organization is all about creativity and using unique ideas.
When I visited our daughter in Virginia last Fall, she took me to EVERY antique store in and around her town. (She knows me well)
There was one shop in-particular that was my favorite. I seem to find everything that was on my “Thrifty, Rusty, Chippy Goodness” List.
There was a rusty, chipped metal tool box that I went “ga-ga” over. She asked, “Mom, what are you going to do with it?” My reply was, “Hmmm…I am not really sure, but I think it would be perfect for my thrifted tea cups and saucers.” Besides, I had already used one as a Fall centerpiece.
And loved it.
Needless to say, my suitcases were too full already. I bought a rustic wooden handled rake, a wire basket and 2 AMAZING farmhouse corbels, already. My suitcases were stuffed and I had forgotten about the vintage tool box.
It was only about $7. I didn’t REALLY need the tool box, did I?
I had also bought an 1800s farmhouse window that was WAY too big for my suitcase and my daughter was going to ship it to me. Little did I know, that she went back to buy the tool box for me. She wrapped it up with the window and sent it as a surprise. I was SO excited.
Not long after I unpacked it, I began creating a Vintage Toolbox for Party Organization. Filling it with my thrifted tea cups and saucers, I am ready for when friends and family pop in for some tea and treats.
It isn’t anything necessary, but it sure is fun to have something unique,unusual and a conversation piece in your home.
What would YOU use a vintage tool box for? Well, besides tools…
