I absolutely love easy upcycling! When my son went off to college, he left behind his old tool box and with his permission, I decided to upcycle it so I would have a place to keep all my garden tools in the backyard. I have grand plans at my new home to plant vegetable gardens everywhere and I wanted my tools in the backyard instead of in the garage.
Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch 2x Ultra Cover Paint + Primer in Gloss Berry Pink. It bonds to wood, metal, plastic and more. First I washed the inside and outside of the toolbox. Then, I spread out a large piece of cardboard on the garage floor and spray-painted the toolbox over several days, letting each side dry completely before rotating it. I had to lay it sideways to spray up into the crevices. I decided not to paint the inside or the outer base. When spray-painting, it's best to keep the can moving all the time, to prevent over-spraying a spot that will run.
