DIY Whitewashed Planter From An Old Toolbox

There are planters in any home, and their diversity strikes! You can find big and small ones, plain and decorated, stenciled and wrapped with fabric, hanging and vertical, outdoor and indoor ones. You can make a planter from cardboard, wood, glass, plastic, metal, stone, almost from any material. You needn’t buy an original planter, you can always make one yourself from various items like a traditional Dutch shoe, a tire, a basket, a mason jar or any other piece, basically, you can turn almost anything into a planter. As the planting season is in full swing now, you may need some creative ideas to make new planters or renovate the existing ones. Today we are sharing a tutorial to make a cool Provence-inspired planter from an old wrecked toolbox. First of all, clear the toolbox from old rusty nails. Pick two small plastic bowls. Fill one of the bowls with water and left the other one empty. Dip your chip brush into your homemade white chalk paint just enough to get a little bit of paint at the tip of the brush. Then, using the empty bowl, wipe most of the paint off the chip brush. Next, dip that brush into the water bowl to thin the paint even more. Having a fully wet brush with very little white chalk paint on it, start brushing the wood. When watered down paint mixture is so watery, you would see a lot of little bubbles while brushing the mixture to the surface. Read the rest of the tutorial here.
