OK, so I used "Autumn" instead, but I love that song, just the same! :)
I bought this old tool box at a local thrift/antique store for $4!!
I saw another one, the same size for much more money, the only difference was that it was painted red...so I did the only logical thing and bought the $4 one and painted myself...Done!
My idea for this was to use it as decoration/a place to stash the bills (the piled up paperwork in our kitchen drives us, my hubby in particular, NUTS). So, I thought of a cute idea that would allow me to change it up season by season.
I had this old trashcan that I was going to just toss, until my bff told me I was crazy and should use it for other things. Thank goodness for her voice of reason. I think it was just one of those days I was tired of looking at the clutter in the garage. Anyway, I kept it...so glad I did, because I not only used it for this project, but another one, too. :)
I used that top piece (all four as a matter of fact)...four pieces, four seasons...getting it yet?
I primed all of them.
Then gave each one a unique color and painted the seasons on them, freehand. Yes, they would have looked much nicer with some vinyl, but I didn't want to bug my friend yet again to use her cricut. Gotta get me one of those! I do kind of like them, though. I weathered them by scratching them up with some sandpaper and then gave them a coat of polyurethane.
I thought they needed something else...can anyone guess?? Aaah, yes, rosettes, of course!
I managed to find some fabric sround the house for Winter, Summer and Autumn, but I am going to have to go out to get something for Spring. That trashcan was so cheap and flimsy, so the pieces are nice and lightweight. All I have to use is some sticky tac and they stay on the box quite nicely. I can change them out and change what I put in the box each season. Love it...and for $4! Oh my! :)
