My little cheater branch and box toolbox

read

I was desiring something to put all my cordless drills and palm sanders in for travel. And then it dawned on me… In my little red tray post, I had this grey box. With leftover paint, the box got hit with a little new colour. I didn’t know what to do with the box at first, […]

Learn it, buy it, make it! and an update

read

Dumping out the drawer full of business cards, a little rustic reclaimed wood business card holder toolbox was created instead! It was only fitting. Part […]

Drill handled one board toolbox HERE Today upon coming home from work, it was pretty much like any other day. I walked towards the front door, tripped over the newspapers, mindlessly threw them into the recycle bin and proceeded inside.  Once the door clicked shut, I gasped.

How to make a board and batten feature attic wall

read

Everyone’s heard of a board and batten wall by now. Board and batten is boards attached to a wall, with both painted out one colour, to give the illusion of a boarded wall, when in fact, most of it is drywall. It’s a great trick for added character at a low cost! I’ve done a […]
