      Glad you enjoyed them, Kim!

  1. So many cute ideas, Lora! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you liked them, Cecilia!

  2. Lora, you have so many great ideas for using your amazing old toolboxes. I love the Easter one and the Valentine’s day one, and the one with your supplies is so clever. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Angie! I definitely use them all through the house, and all through the seasons!

  3. Love these ideas! I have two old metal ones. One stores my craft stuff and the other is just decorative but you gave me some great ideas!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      So glad you found some inspiration, Cheryl!

  4. I love your vintage tool boxes. So cute. Your styling is fabulous as always. The one from your dad is amazing. The color is so much fun.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Katie! It’s my first red one, and I can’t wait to style it up for the 4th!

  5. Lora, you always inspire me so much with how you use and repurpose vintage finds in your decor! I love all your ideas, but my favorite is the one styled for Valentine’s Day. The way you used the string to keep the lid from falling all the way open is sheer genius!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Where there’s a will there’s a way, Michelle! Helped that I had that red and white twine handy from Christmas decor;)

  6. I’ve never thought to take the toolbox apart. It’s genius! And you are so right about the tool box coming open and everything falling out. Had that happen more than once. Ugh. All of your ideas were fantastic. I can hardly wait to find one I love and bring it home just so I can take it apart! Thank you for joining in. Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Happy vintage toolbox hunting, Cindy!

  7. You shared so many great ideas! My favorite is the Valentine’s Day toolbox, probably because I’ve been thinking about how I want to decorate for it this year.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m excited to have a red one to play with through the seasons! This challenge got me to scrub it up so I could bring it inside.

  8. Marlene Stephenson says:

    I do love all your ideas and do have a few of these beauties. I head straight for the garage or toolshed when I go junk’n!! I love your idea to separate and put feet on them, so cute.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Lucky you that you’ve got some already, Marlene! Have fun with them:)

  9. I loved all of your toolbox ideas. But I especially liked the storage whatever-it-is made of the old tins. I love tins and try to limit myself to 1)old ones, and 2) ones I can use to “wrap” Christmas gifts in! My current fave, although it is not a “tin” anymore is using a Hershey’s cocoa plastic tin to hold my hot glue sticks; it is EXACTLY the right height. Course, I need 2 for the overflow and colored sticks!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m going to remember that Hershey cocoa tip, Kathy. Think my daughter’s been emptying one, and my glue sticks are just in a plastic bag. Thanks for the great tip!

  10. Lora you are so creative my friend. Luved all your toolbox ideas here today🙌🏻

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Ann! I just love using old toolboxes around my house!

  11. Lora,
    I love all your creative ideas for using tool boxes. Obviously, we both have a love for the old and chippy ones.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, the crustier the better, Rachel:)

  12. I can’t get over how many vintage pieces you have. Lora, they’re all fabulous! I love all the creative ways you’ve styled them. Especially, the seasonal ones. My favorite is how you organized the craft and art supplies. I need to implement those ideas stat 🙂 Hugs and Happy New Year, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I do use them throughout the seasons and all over the house, CoCo. And I can never say no to one more;)

  13. Carmen Montmarquet says:

    So many amazing ideas, Thank You.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Your welcome! Glad you enjoyed them:)

  14. Lora, you have a truly amazing collection! I adore each vignette that you have created. Your tin organizers are pretty fabulous too!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I do have quite a few, Laura! You’d think I whispered in Cindy’s ear to come up with this theme;)
