Nothing excites me more than finding super easy fixes for things I need.
Since I’m still putzing around in the workshop, this toolbox paint storage paper roll caddy is exactly what I needed! LOVE it when stuff like this just happens. By fluke.
You caught that this was a toolbox, right?
HILARIOUS how my little reclaimed wood toolboxes are doing so many things other than holding tools. I’m very proud of how far they’ve come. It’s like they’ve just finished toolbox university and are now doing great things. 🙂
I had this big ‘ol roll of paper from who knows where.. I think the thrift store? No idea what it is, but I’ve been using it to line the tables for when I paint.
But a loose roll is awkward. I was all prepared to build some giant kinda paper dispenser for it. I gathered up the wood, cut it to size…
… and then sighed.
That just wasn’t exciting.
What’s WRONG with me?! I have this incessant need to repurpose stuff. I feel like building from scratch is cheating. <—issues much?
I made this super basic pallet wood tool tote (how to is HERE) quite awhile ago. It was meant to tote around screws. It worked great… but I always found it too heavy to carry.
I used it to store screws for while, but with my enhanced pallet shelf in the works, no comparison. I retired this guy for wood parts.
It was the PERFECT fit! And it could even hold my collection of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint! Whoop!
But… it was too… blonde. I love woodsy pallet wood, but this just looked too bland with bland paper.

And it turned into an old crate looking thing. Love it!
You know how Miss Mustard Seed talks about being the furniture whisperer and just ‘knows’ what it needs?
That’s me’n my toolboxes. We whisper… boy do we. 😀
Ok, so I NOW have to point out this funny spoof I did on MMS and myself comparing… photoshoots. You need to see ( Milk Paint Line vs. Junk So Fine)
Next up in the workshop revamp, I’ll be working in the paint storage area, so I got a little head start!
I could have lied and told you I built a toolbox paint roll caddy, but it really isn’t true. I actually wouldn’t have thought to create a paper caddy in a way that also holds paint!
And THAT is why I love repurposing so much. A unique blend of personality and functionality… by complete fluke. 🙂
