If you were around the blog yesterday, you would have seen all the junk love poured towards my crazy little sawhorse pipe lamps. Thank you so very much for the thumbs up! Totally unexpected!

I’ll admit, those lamps indeed dressed the kitchen up a notch. And a few elements seemed to need updating alongside them. Hence… the little red toolbox got swapped out for this branch handled toolbox organizer by the phone.

This little toolbox is fairly long and narrow, so it’s wonderful to tuck an iPhone inside without it getting lost, yet just wide enough for a clay pot full of pens. 

When I landed that chunk of wood with the bark still attached, I knew it would come in handy one day. Sure makes for a neat edge!

And then there’s that tape holder branch… it really is just perfect!

You may recognize this toolbox from the stash I had planned to sell.

Obviously the sell didn’t transpire. My gut said not to go in that direction for now. So I put them to work instead. I mean, how on earth do you sell the very stock you need?! :)

To the right of the toolbox is the ‘stacked crate office on a wall’.

I really love the branch handled toolbox alongside the woodsy lamp touches.

Naturally, one thing always leads to another. Can you guess what I have my eye on next?

I love this deep green metal toolbox, but perhaps it’s time for a change…

Besides, any excuse to build something new is a good excuse indeed. :)

Those sawhorse lamps are my fav to date. You could totally sell those in pottery barn! You seriously need to pitch them to their buyers or design team. Thank you for sharing your ideas with the world. You are an inspiration to us all! Thanks again!
