Tool Box Table Runner

This is a super quick project I did last week to bring some color into the dining room.
We had a couple of 1×4 wood common boards in the garage. This long, narrow box is simply screwed together and painted in Vine Green by Ben Moore.

I filled it with greenery. It took nine small plants to fill it up but candles at different heights would be super pretty too.

The brass handles dress it up a little bit and match the knobs on the buffet.

I wondered if it would be kind of a pain to move at meal time but it’s all one piece and that is easier than moving a trio of candles or something like that. Also, it’s an accent that can go on the buffet nicely too.

Won’t it be beautiful when the greenery grows a little fuller?

I am just loving this green paint. Look what else got a coat of that color.

Here is what that looked like before.

This is a morning room or a breakfast nook but I haven’t even given this spot much thought – yet!

Right now it functions as my work space. The green cabinet holds my paints, fabric and glue gun, etc.

I ordered some window coverings for our bedroom and they are taking a long time to get here. I am excited to share the master bedroom with you soon.

Thanks for dropping in.

Happy Monday and see you next time.

I love the color and the pull. It’s so cute. I can’t wait to see more of your cute house.


Your planter box looks amazing Holly & I love, love that green shade of paint. Your other unit looks wonderful in the green too! I think some touches of colour looks fab in your rooms … am enjoying seeing your beautiful Home come together with your special touches.
