Antique Toolbox Centerpiece

You guys know I love to switch things up a lot. Like a lot a lot. re-decorating & playing with decor gives my brain a little break after a long day at the shop. Sometimes it’s a big change & today’s centerpiece isn’t. I literally took greens out of jars that were on the table & put them in my new vintage tool box I picked up at our shop the other day. The Family roost, who are vendors at our shop The Found Cottage, brought in this mint tool box & as soon as it came in the door I knew it wasn’t going to go out on the floor. I was taking it home with me…

I have this love for antique tool boxes. & this one is massive.& it’s mint. This one is so big that I could hardly lift it… I mean, or farmhouse table is quite large & it takes a big chunk of the table. I guess you can compare it to the coffee mugs for perspective. If you remember our antique bottle centerpiece [here] than you saw these florals, I simply just removed them from the glass jugs & put the bundle in this antique tool box. You can’t get more simple that that folks… you just can’t. The nice thing is you can easily remove the centerpiece by simply taking the toolbox off the table.. if you can lift it. You can find antique toolboxes at your local thrift stores, vintage stores, & more. If you can’t find one, you can DIY one. I just love the simplicity & the laid back vibe of this spring & summer centerpiece.

Sometimes I wonder if I sound share these random decor moments with you. I wonder if it’s worth putting my random decor adventures here on the blog, but then I remember that’s why I blog. To hopefully inspire others in the smallest and biggest ways whether it’s decorating or lifestyle. So I hope you were inspired by this simple antique toolbox centerpiece today & I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to stop by my blog daily to see what I’m up to. I mean that. Thank you. xx
