I bought a really rough, dirty and grungy carpenter tool box last summer at a garage sale for $3.00. Sorry no before pictures, I have been out of the blogsphere for a while, so I realized I forgot to take a pic after I added my base color. I followed these great steps from Shanty-2-chic on how to distress paint with vaseline. I love all their ideas!! I used spray paint for both coats of paint. I did add one more step, I rubbed on paste wax and than just buffed it off for my final coat since I love the look!

I finally put my solar chandelier together after storing everything in my shed since last summer. I got the idea from my good friend, Windy. I took all the electric wires out and unscrewed the bulbs, than glued on solar lights. See my post on a diy solar wall sconce for more details... Its hanging on my back patio, love the twinkling lights...

**This is a recipe my mom shared. I don't know the origin, therefore, unable to give credit. Please let me know if it's yours.**
This is a great week night recipe.
- rotisserie or grilled chicken (bones removed)
- 1 can mexicorn
- 1 can campbell's tomato soup
- 1 can black beans
- 1 ranch seasoning packet
- 1 taco seasoning packet
- Sour Cream
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Dump the ingredients into a stockpot, mix and warm up. Served with a dollop of sour cream and shredded cheese on top, with tortilla chips on the side.
My alterations to the recipe:
- The recipe does not call for it, but I add 1 or 2 cans of diced tomatoes.
- I often double the soup, corn, and beans to the chicken ratio.
This is a great use of my "best grilled chicken".
Let me know if you try it, and any changes you might think to make.
CLANG, CLANG (that's the dinner bell)
