But may I admit here and now, I priced it high so I could bring it back home again?
Such a sales person… 🙂
I was still cleaning up from the market, when this little ammo box spoke to me…
“Use me for something! Don’t hide me away…”
Since I was fiddling with my workshop at the time with the pallet section hammer organizer, I flipped it on its back, and cut a plank for a shelf.
I really needed a place for craft paint I use for stencils, so that determined where to position the shelf.
A little black / green craft paint did the trick for the sides…
… with a blast of Fusion Mineral Paint’s Fort York Red I had left over from other projects. (Thanks for letting me try it, Fusion!)
Ohhh my goodness, I LOVE it!
The shock of red inside reminds me of my fav funky wall cabinet with lime green inside.
The little stripe on the outside of the ammo box was orange, and since my preference is red, it was just taped off and repainted.
The metal handle was rusty, so that was lightly touched with a little red as well.
And now the ammo box is a cool, little workshop cabinet!
I’m kinda crazy about it. It looks like it’s 100 years old.
And near the Route 66 pallet wood cabinet on the same wall.
I love funky little crates for cabinets! Especially when you don’t have to build them from scratch… 🙂
What would you use this little ammo box for?
