My vintage mirror collection fit perfect inside the top of this old tool box. Im working on the vintage perfume bottles ... a few to start.
The box was plywood and other misc. woods... and dry when I bought it. Oh, and slightly swollen.
The inside is what the outside also looked like before painting it black.
Doilies first...
Brown paper liner for the drawers.
Deep drawer for chunky bracelets.
Some of my favorite things... mine and familys.

A junk store find was "no doubt" going to be a keeper. I LOVE little storage drawers :)

MimiToria writes: Lucky you Tammy. I've been looking for one of these wood tool boxes for many years and have come upon one. The one I saw was mega bucks at a Flea Market and unfortunately out of my price range.
Enjoy your wonderful find. It's exactly what I'd do with one I find, but I'd be using it at my shows too. Posted: 12:59 pm on January 23rd
