What is not to like about a primitive blue rolling tool chest?
It checks all the boxes on my list.
After cleaning out all the metal bits, it needed a heavy scraping and scrubbing.
Of course I used my A+ scraper tool.
Melissa of Melissa's Antiques guessed correctly my favorite tool is actually a grill cleaner!
The hardest parts were the two small partitioned areas on either side.
Resorted to a toothbrush to clean those.
Hanging out to dry.
Notice the top is not attached.
The screws had ripped from the frame.
Wood glue, clamps and four new screws fixed the darling right up.
The wood was very dry so Feed'N Wax to the rescue.
Delicious blue patina.
The handles are drawer pulls.
But they are sturdy.
The wood really glows.
I refuse to give it a name because I cannot keep it.
Though I do lust after it.
It will be rolling its primitive blue self off to the farm sale at Magnolia Ridge.
