Turn a Vintage Metal Lunch Box into Children's Tool or Art Box

Old Donnie at Glasgow Trading Post, Glasgow, MO, did it again.

He gave me a challenge: Turn a vintage black lunch box into a tool (or art supplies) box for kids.

The project is very easy.

Sand the lunch box inside and out. Get rid as as much rust as you can.

Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Paint the inside with white enamel spray paint.

Paint the outside with a bright red.

As always, it will take three or four coats.

Once dry, paint large white ovals. Let dry between layers of three or four.

With a round brush, dip into black, add eyebrows, the round pupils, outline the white eyes, and paint the nose and mouth.

Let dry then dip the end of a brush into white and dot white highlights in the pupils.

After all has dried, protect the paint with at least - preferably more - two layers of water based varnish.
