I found this toolbox at an antique mall not far from here. I fell in love with it as soon as I laid eyes on it.
I love the dark farmish green color and general rustiness of it. It will be great to put in my office to organize more of my junk.
When I got it home I realized that it was the same color as my tool caddy that I bought last year at the Rural Society Antique And Garden Show in Mount Vernon, Ohio and featured in my Winter Front Porch post. That green must be a popular color for the farm crowd.
It was like they were separated at birth.
And then one of them ate a whole lot of meat and potatoes and got a lot bigger than the other one and then they were one of those sets of twins that no one can believe are actually twins.
Yeah, like that.
Love that toolbox! I buy them too. I don't know why, but they are sooo cool.

Love the COLOR!! I have a similar old metal box in the basement; would love to paint it! Thanks for the inspiration!

Sounds like a true story to me. I'm so happy they found each other again, even though you had a whole lot to do with it. Love them both!
Uncanny! Are they from the same manufacturer? They DO look like a set! I love the metal clasps on the box...you never see those anymore.
I just love happy endings. It was meant to be! I'm still anxious to see that office.

Funny girl. Thank goodness they've found each other again!
Great old box. You could always do repair work on the side. (Remember "Hank" on Green Acres?)
A handsome set!
I think they are kissing cousins, Pam! LOL
Great find, I'm loving it. You can never go wrong picking up a little battered metal toolboxes. They are like a little black dress for home decor nuts like me.

I fell in love with that tool box too, as soon as I saw your link at Coastal Charm. I knew I would click and swoon. Be still my heart! That is a keeper right there. Love. It! And the little Winter scene makes me long for something even somewhat resembling cool air to blow this way. So sweet!
I love that green color. Especially when it's all chippy. Such great toolboxes.
I love a story with a "happy ending" 🙂 Laurel
I love that piece so much!! Thanx for linking up to THT!
