Buttons & Burlap Tool Tote

Warm weather means outdoor painting and
I stockpiled wooden things all winter, so I'm glad
to get back to walking around in paint-splattered shirts again.
This little wooden tote was in that stash, and while useful,
it wasn't all that attractive to look at.
A little white paint, a little distressing , 
a few vintage buttons & some burlap - now it's useful, and nice for displays as well .
I've got many more small things to be painted,
and hope to start finishing some of them soon.

You Can Find Me at These Parties:


  1. How cute! I LOVE the way you accessorized it.

  3. Love it! The burlap and buttons add a great touch!

  4. Angie,
    Love this painted tote with those sweet vintage photos and spools of thread.It is all so pretty.

  5. cute, cute!!! LOVE a tote or carrier! Have a Happy Mother's Day, Angie!

  6. Very cute!! Love the additions of the buttons -- gives it real charm and character! I'm still painting in the basement -- cold and rainy here again but my hands are splattered with paint (didn't realize how much until I wrote out a check at the store this afternoon! Embarrassing!)

  7. I love your newly painted tote with all its button jewelry! You're so right, painting outdoors is so much more enjoyable than painting in a dark old basement. Happy Mother's Day!


Your kind comments make my day!
