How this antique toolbox became a kitchen focal point
A couple weeks ago I discovered a beautiful new artisan co-op shop in my home town (read the full post about The Olde Mercantile here). I left with beautiful finds - some old and some new - but wasn't quite sure of what I would do with any of them, I just knew I had to have the items. Little did I know that an old wooden toolbox, some galvanized metal coasters and a painted mason jar would work perfectly in tandem to inspire a little DIY coffee station in my kitchen.
The counter space in my kitchen was quite empty before with nothing but my Keurig and coffee maker upon it. Now, the dark coffee mugs and vintage wood compliment the soapstone and add loads of charm and character.
Loose white tea leaves and bags of coconut coffee and peach tea can now be stored right in the tool box and make the space feel cozy...
