{ Vintage Toolbox Coffee Table Decor !}

Hi & byeeee Monday already..It's been such a productive day around our little abode. I got laundry finished, hair highlighted, worked on an upcoming sponsored post , photographed two areas & etc..I mean actually I could say this whole past weekend was an accomplishing  time!! We got  some much needed winter stuff done..garage, yard, vehicles washed, etc..I know all my northern folks know about winterizing before December hits ;) ! Anyways enough with chores & boring stuff, today I'm sharing this thrifty & vintage wood toolbox ,and  how I styled it for the most simple little coffee table tablescape!! You guys pry already know this by now, but we have dogs...2 huge ones & they're really rambunctious just like kids are!! They're constantly playing, tumbling & jumping all over..so coffee table decor is hard. When I came up with this little decor idea for Christmas it was perfect for sustaining wear & tear hahaha #dogs! My hubby found this nifty vintage toolbox a few months ago & I knew I wanted to keep it for Christmas right away! I love the imperfections in the wood, the authentic aged look & most important the chippy red paint on the handle!!!!


I knew I wanted something other then just tree trimmings in the toolbox. I know that's the most obvious & popular idea, but I needed some traditional Christmas color mixed in so I added some little faux gifts with some wool plaid ribbon I had leftover!! 



I'm loving how simple & rustic our upper level is this year!! The vintage items & pops of red  authentic Christmas goods have it feeling extra warm & cozy!! I picked these faux tree trimming { actually garland } up +Michaels Stores  for under $20 on sale..Ya, they're expensive so use the 40% coupon!! 

 


I love all the distressed & worn aspects about this piece!! I've saw these going all the way up to $50 at some junkin shops! I still can't believe what people pitch #free!! 


And then there's my most favorite part about this little gem..the aged chippy & scanty RED paint on the handle!! I love the color red already, but I love the warm & festive feel this chippy piece gives for the holidays!!
  
What do you think about incorporating vintage junk pieces into holiday decor? Do you keep it just for the outdoors?

I hope you all have a great rest of the week!!
