DIY Fresh and Feminine Painters Toolbox

I recently moved to Portland and am lucky enough to have my own studio.  The first thing I did after unpacking was give it a fresh and fun coat of paint!  I’ve totally fallen for a yellow, aqua and pink palette. It has a 70’s California summer vibe that I love; and naturally, I couldn’t resist making matching storage and accessories!

I picked up a plain wood tool box and used paint, ribbon, and flowers in matching colors to create a fresh and feminine custom paint holder.   It’s a fun project you can get really get creative with, especially with so many beautiful Little Birdie Crafts supplies available to choose from.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Tools

  • Paint brushes (Craft Store)
  • Craft Glue (Craft Store)
  • Frog tape (Home Depot)

This tool box is great for storing paints and paint brushes as well as carrying them to and from your work station.  I think my little girl plans to steal it as soon as I am not looking!

Step 1: Paint the tool box

I used Frog tape to mark off a geometric shape on the sides; painting the white first, the taping of the white to paint the yellow.  Then I painted the ends yellow and the rest of the main body white.

Step 2: Add the embellishments

a) Apply glue to the strips of ribbon and press them onto the toolbox edges or across the side panels

b) Strip the flowers off the wire stems

c) Apply glue to the flowers and press onto the top part of the box, extend slightly onto the handle bar

Step 3: Attach the glitter letters

These are a simple peel and stick, use a ruler to keep them in a straight line as you apply them

Step 4: Fill your box with paints and paint brushes

 

Product Tip: The beauty of chalk paint is that you can get different effects by using sandpaper on the chalk paint.  For more of a vintage or distressed look, the chalk paints can be sandpapered easily to give you this look and feel.

Check out Little Birdie for other fun additions to your tool box, a great range of paint colors, stickers or ribbons to attach it. Can’t wait to see what you make!

Simple Autumn Place Cards

The Fall season is truly one of my favorites.  The Florida air gets slightly less humid and a tiny bit more crisp and cool, and our schedules aren’t maxed out with holiday celebrating.  I love to invite our friends over for dinner parties, dessert nights, and even bonfire fun. I quickly made these Autumn place cards using chipboard Autumn leaves from Little Birdie Crafts, some wooden disks, spray paint, hot glue and just a few minutes of work!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

• Chipboard Small Leaves 6pcs

• Spray Paint

• Wooden Disks

• Hot Glue Gun and Glue

Step 1: Remove the foam sticker backing from the chipboard leaves.

Step 2: Spray paint the leaves and allow to dry. (I used a metallic gold spray paint.)

Step 3: Carefully hot glue leaves to wooden disks and hold in place until the glue sets.

(Optional) Step 4: Use a pen to write guests’ names or even add a clip to the back to make fun food place cards.

Step 5: Be the best party hostess ever!

These would be adorable in mason jars or apothecary jars filled with mini pine cones too!

I am so ready for the fall season! What’s your favorite season?
