For 8 long years I quietly waited. I kept it a secret, but in my heart I coveted this very tool box that now sits in my entry way (for now). It was my Grandfather's and it sat in my Mother's house driving me crazy because I knew I wanted it so badly.
Long story short, she recently moved into a new home and gifted it to me.
Hooray! Day of all days. I took it home and washed the old wood. I can tell you from a few experiences that wet, old, wood really stinks. I cleaned out all the rusty screws and unknowns and then tenderly rubbed coconut oil into the wood to bring out the grain and the patina.
Patience is a Virtue.
A perfect place to organize my scentsy wax melts.
Scent of the month- Gain fabric softener. Yup, they make wax melts too.
